Yet Another Bag-- It must be BAG week here at DQ

Have you seen the new Quilts and More from Better Homes and Gardens? It is a publication that I always look forward to. This edition has 29 quick projects. And many of them are must do's in my book. Seriously cute, people. Seriously.

This bag is from the pattern Daisy Dazzler. I needed a cute bag to head back to work with in a few weeks. This will do it. I had some sale Amy Butler fabrics from her Daisy Chain line and I had some scraps from previous lines that I incorporated into the bag. I really do like how it turned out.

I find the pleated ends of the bag perfectly charming. Sorry that I didn't capture that better on film. I will warn you to read very carefully through all of the directions. I decided to connect the lining a way that I like to do it, just a personal choice. I made this bag in about 3 hours and that included cutting. This is a BIG bag. I think I could easily carry a pair of jeans, a shirt, and intimates for an overnight bag, if I wanted to. It would also work well for a beach towel, water, and sunscreen. It would make a great gift, as well.

I think it is a darling design. There are supposedly a couple of different variations that you are suppose to be able to access online, but the link is not working. I hope APQ fixes that, as I would be interested in the scrappier version to use up some of my scraps.

Check out the new Quilts and More. You won't be disappointed.
