Weekend Bag

Happy Holidays! It has been a little crazy at our house with Christmas around the corner and 4 birthdays this month. Crazy, but a happy crazy! Thought I would post this finished project.

I pieced scraps from another project together planning on making a table runner for a gift exchange but wasn't pleased with the size. So cut and squared up the corners ending with a 16” x 32” rectangle. Great size for a bag. The finished bag is 15”x12½”x4”. 

It has 3 internal pockets and I added a strap with a lobster clasp inside. Also up-cycled one jean pant leg with the back pocket. Still have the other pant leg (along with a box of used jeans).  I think I will make myself one in January.

 I took a lot of pictures, so I will get busy and write instructions and post next week. Have a great day and stay warm. It's 44 outside, that's cold for California.

See all the other finish items at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I like the addition of denim to the patchwork.

So cute! I love the jeans pocket on the side. I have so many old jeans saved up, I could make about fifty bags! lol
