I fell in love with this bag pattern when I saw a sample at a local quilt shop. I thought this would be a perfect way to get my Heather Bailey Pop Garden fix. The pattern is by Pink Chalk Studio, another Pacific Northwest quilter/designer/blogger. Whoo hoo! This bag, the Mail Sack, comes in two sizes--I made the really big one. A fun cross-body bag is a great way to great ready for spring if you use fun, bright-colored fabrics.
Check out how roomy it is! It even has a zippered pouch and a pocket to keep you organized.
Another great bag is the Margaret Sling Bag by Oh, Fransson. This free pattern delivers a simple lined bag with a ton of style! I love the front pleat. She has a couple of examples in really cool fabrics on her blog as well. I would consider myself an intermediate seamstress, and this bag was totally doable for me.
Whip up one of these bags and you'll be ready to head out for some spring shopping!
