Just finished my second BB Bag from Mickey Beebe. This one I made more changes to the original pattern. I used cotton fabric for this bag and only interfaced the outside layers and the pleated front pocket.
I have been looking for a place to use some of this bird fabric I bought in Paducah last April. Of course I bought a yard of the fabric and used less than a fat quarter so now I need to figure out how to use the rest.
The outside has one zippered pocket on the back and one straight pocket underneath. I used a variety of fabrics to piece the front.
I put the white paper sticking out of the zippered pockets so they would show up better. I added the bottom zippered pocket to hold bills and change and the top zippered pocket will hold my check book.
The next photo shows the pleated pocket – room for odds and ends.
Will be fun to carry this bag – you know I am getting quite a lot of bags made and end up changing my stuff to a new bag pretty often. Must always remember to double check I have the essentials as it is easy to forget to move something important.
I sure had a mess in my sewing room after making these two bags. I had to stop before I finished this one to clean up. I was running out of places to put things down. Now to clean it up so I can work on a different project.
