One of the many ongoing project on my list is now complete, Yea! I wanted a hands free bag I could sling across my body but I didn't want anything huge like a messenger bag. I found this Lazy Girl pattern at my LQS.
My version only has 1 button instead of 3 and I didn't round the bottom.
Could I have made up a similar pattern myself? With better features? No doubt, but I was being a "lazy girl" myself and just wanted something quick. I did change one thing. The pattern wanted you to cut a slit on the underside of the flap to turn it right side out, then whip stitch the slash shut. Well, nix that stupid idea. I turned it at a seam.
This size bag is just the right size for taking to the grocery store for hands free shopping (I can't believe how many women leave their purses in the shopping cart while they are looking at produce etc.) I plan to take this on vacation. It will be nice to not have to worry about keeping track of my purse.
That's all for today. Talk at you later. Rumi
