This weekend at retreat brought the completion of not one, but three UFOs! Here’s the second one, my Miranda Bag, started in November 2008, and first blogged about here..
I made this smaller than the original Lazy Girl pattern size, it measures 11.25″ wide and 8.25″ tall (excluding the handles). I put the finishing touches on Monday night and loaded it full of my loot!
The quilting is kind of fun, just following the pattern in the print…
The fabric is from Marcus, a line by Michelle D’AMore, “Rio”, I believe. The stripe is my favorite! And it’s loaded full of pockets–yeah! A bag with lots o’ pockets is a must.
If you’ve never used a Lazy Girl pattern, they are quite easy to follow, very well organized and accurate. I think even a beginner to bag-making could create with her patterns with very little trouble.
It feels so good to finish things. I should try it more often. ;->
