“This is such a great bag!”

This bag was inspired by Grandma Blanche. She created countless beautiful quilts and other useful items -always with unusual materials. Create your own collage of fabrics using cast-away clothing and scraps of fabrics with a man's tie for the closure. Or design it with a coordinated cotton collection. This bag is just the right size to hold everything you need for the day. The adjustable straps can be a recycled belt or made from fabric. There are two interior pockets for organizing. Finished size is approximately 13"x 17".
