Finally!

Finished MrsB's bag, that is. I started a week ago, but then the good weather came (which involved laying in the rest of the onion bed, moving the chicken coop, pruning and fertilizing trees, etc.

The size came out a little larger than expected, although I am more than pleased with the result:




The body measures 12" wide, 16" high and 2" deep. The flap closes with a pair of magnets.



The interior is the ridiculously mod 'los novios' print - I adore sugar skulls (not just because they're sweet!) and this fabric tickles my heart. The inside does not feature my usual pen pocket, and I know a slash pocket for a library card would have been appropriate, but every time I tried to lay a pocket over the interior, I just cried at the idea of laying thread lines over that perfect fabric!



The strap is adjustable, up to 6', since Mrs. B is so very, very tall. (Although at 5'4" I think Queen Elizabeth II is tall, but that's probably just because she always wears pumps!)

I am so tickled with the way it turned out, I am going to have to make one for me (come July when I get a break in craft fair season.)
