I chose this tutorial from 'Sew Prim Khris' for a few reasons. I really like that it has the straps on the outside of the bag - which stylistically speaking I think adds some fun contrast and also because this tutorial had a pocket on the outside and my mom likes a pocket on the outside! I added the polka dot fabrics because A). My mom likes polka dots (you knew I was going to say that!) and B). My mom's favourite colours are black and purple (c'mon you KNEW it this time!).
I only made 2 changes to this tutorial - I quilted the main panels of the bag - only the top fabric and the batting, then I ironed on some lightweight interfacing to the batting and I made the front pocket a wee bit shorter to showcase as much of the NYC fabric as possible.
Pockets and polkas on the inside too!!!
And the back...look at all those neato details in the fabric design. It truly does speak to the atmosphere of Times Square.
She sure is going to have fun carrying this one! Linking up with the 'Let's Get Acquainted' linky party hosted by Sew Bittersweet Designs.
Have a great week all!!
