We had a birthday come and go last week - my aunt turned 60-something. I can't keep track of these things. Sometimes, I don't remember how old I am!
I couldn't blog about the gift for her until I actually gave it to her. And here it is.
She had mentioned at some point that she would love to have a bag with some pockets. She is ALWAYS carrying around a bag full of stuff, so something nice for Sunday or so was what I thought she might need.
The exterior of the bag is home decor fabric, though it is quite soft. The inside is some cotton print I had in my stash.
The pattern is from Rebekah Lambert, the Pleated Tote Pattern. The only thing I changed was the pockets. I sewed a half sized panel onto the lining and then up the middle to make two large full sized pockets.
