Schlep Bag

I saw the pattern link for this on the quiltville chat yahoo group, and had to try it. And since I had some batik out from the last quilt I was working on, I decided to try it in these three cool colorways of the same line.

The pattern is here, free:

Schlep Bag

I changed it just a little by using 6½ inch squares and I made the strap longer so it'd be a shoulder bag instead of a handbag. I made mine reversible too. Instead of batting in the strap, I used a couple of 1½ strips from some old jeans. That made it thicker and stronger but not puffy like batting would be.

Now I want to make one using ultrasuede, maybe a forest green and brown combo. Add a zipper at the top, and a couple of zippered pockets in the lining. Sort of a grown-up version. :)

ForestJane, do you have the logo for RRCB still? Bonnie removed it along with the pattern from her website/blog and I was using that link for the button. Either I missed it or it's not in folders. I remember you helped with other logos...wondered if you could do so again. I've also emailed Bonnie but she's busy right now with her Mom--lucky her. Thanks Sandi
