Folklore bag

Folklore bag 1
For a while I was really in love with the last bag that I made and then...not so much. It had to do with my revision of the straps, I think, and also probably with my tendency to get really tired of things I see every day and need a change after a couple of months. Also, I'd loved this pattern (it's the Folklore Bag from One-Yard Wonders) since I got the book and had been itching to make it. So, here it is!

I really love this bag. It is the perfect size! Not too big, but definitely large enough to hold all of my necessities, plus a large hardcover book (and I'm currently in the middle of this, which is surprisingly really good!) I lined it in a contrasting orange with white polka dots; you may remember this super soft corduroy from these softies I made a few months back. It translated equally well to this bag, though I do think the straps could've used some interfacing to make them a little less floppy. Oh well--I'll just have to add some to the next one I make!

Love it! I've been thinking about getting one yard wonders. I might have to pick up a copy. Make anything else from the book yet?

Yeah--I've made the Obi-Inspired Hot/Cold wrap a number of times already, but those are the only things...so far! It's got a LOT of ideas for how to reduce your stash...

Oh right! I forgot. I loved those!
