As I mentioned in my previous post, I had some leftover triangles from the baby quilt I was making. Not one to waste already sewn fabric, The triangles were in the perfect dimension to make a bag.
I used the same solid color that I previously used for the quilt binding as at the sides. I bought some new matching patterned fabric for the inside.
After figuring out the dimensions (I don’t remember them exactly), I lined the outside with fusible thermolam fleece. Then I quilted the pieces. The sides are parallel quilting about 1 inch apart. The front and back are quilted following the triangles lines.
The inside lining I interfaced with SF101. The handles are natural color webbing. I still had some extra half triangles and I was determined to use all of them so I pieced them together and used them to make pockets on the inside. I think it adds a nice contrast to the inside.
After that it was simple putting the bag together and some top stitching around the top edge. It’s really nice and sturdy and I would have considered keeping it for myself if it didn’t match the baby quilt perfectly. 😉
A couple more pictures so you can see how the two sides vary.
