Art Fund Donation

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a flier at work asking for handmade items for a Silent Auction for a fund raiser for the Fine Arts Fund. I thought that a Sew Together Bag would be something quick that I could make that might draw in a bit of money.

Last night, I finished the first bag. I will make a second bag this weekend and turn it in on Monday.

I used a leftover striped fabric that was from the cow quilt I made my niece. I added a red for the bindings and side panels.

Orange was lovely for the first set of pockets.

And green dots added a nice pop for the inside of the inside pockets.

Top it all off with bright pink zippers and I think this bag is a winner!

It sure is! I love it. Did you use fusible fleece or just intefacing in your bags? Reading over the pattern and trying to decide what I want to with mine.
