If at first you don't succeed...

try again. Which definitely held true to form on my second attempt of the patchwork bag.

It was far easier to put together this time, and I'm really happy with the results. I cut out all the pieces last night and did the patchwork. I was able to finish the outside during Isaiah's nap and hand sewed the lining in this afternoon.

Now that I've finished two of these, I am in love with the pattern. The quilting of all the pieces is a little time consuming, but is definitely worth it. Plus I used fabrics from my stash and from my swap with Stefanie. It feels good to use some of my favorite fabrics!


Have a great weekend everybody!
