Another March finish...









Another finish for March for the "One Project a Month Challenge"! I've completed my Envelop Bag today! (sssshhhh... needs 2 buttons for closures)














Today I made the handle, and the inserts I mentioned yesterday.










Then I hand stitched the inserts in place...

























These inserts make the side pockets deeper... for fear of loosing something... I tend to carry a lot around... 8-)





The insert fabric was as close in color as I was going to get shopping from my stash... It works well enough! 8-)















For those that requested, I'm very sorry, but I can't do a tutorial on the Envelope Bag, but you can find the pattern at The Quilt Company site. Look under patterns, they call it the "3 Pocket Tote". 8-)

So cute, Myra! I think your insert fabric goes great with the other fabrics. What a clever pattern that is. How do people come up with such things?

Fantastic!! Looks like you've had a very productive March, Myra!!

Very nice. I have that pattern and have made that bag and the side pockets weren't deep enough. I wasn't as clever as you, though. Great idea to add that extra fabric to make the pockets more serviceable!

Very nice and it looks like a good size too. I don't like huge bags and if they are too small they are useless. This one is just right.

Myra, the bag looks so nice. Congratulations on another finished project and does that not feel so good.

Oh I love it so sweet. in reply to your question about the orange quilt I drew the lines on freehand using a medeira magic marker pen that disapears after a few hours and I used a snap quilting frame which is great,
