The proof? I've made four so far, with promises to make at least another three.
This one is for me, and I used Outside Oslo fabric by Jessica Jones for the exterior and pockets. The interior is Alexander Henry's Dasha, and the straps are Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley.
I also made two similar bags using a Joann's home decor fabric I found on sale last year, as well as some awesome green Echino, and an Anthology balloon print for the lining.
I gave one to my sister and kept one for myself. I couldn't part with the sunglasses (or at least a piece of them).
I just love the green and purple combo!
Choosing the fabric for a project is definitely my favorite part, and I loved coming up with these combinations. The bag comes together very quickly.
I followed the pattern pretty closely, but I did make the straps longer on the last bag.
As written, the straps are not long enough to carry the bag on your shoulder, which I prefer.
Try the pattern for yourself, and you can grocery shop in style!
