The bag turned out a little drab for me so I appliqued on this flower to perk it up.
This is the inside. I dug through my scrap bag and found enough leftover scraps for the inside. The bag is 8" x 11" and I used the pattern: Noodlehead's Wide Open Zipper Pouch.
Also, I forgot to tell you about my mistake with Free Motion Quilting. After I had completed two rows I happened to turn the piece over and discovered the tension was wacky. Fixed it and moved on. It had been a while since I had done any FMQ and completely forgot about the tension. Also, I don't think I told you I use water dissolving thread when practicing. This is awesome. I just use it in the bobbin. After I had filled up my piece, I placed it in a pan of water and within five minutes I was able to pull all the top threads out and hang the pieces up to dry. Today I just need to press the pieces, make them into a sandwich again, and practice some more. What a fun way to spend this holiday weekend. Hope you all have a great time too!
