This bag is so easy, but when you’re sick for two weeks in the middle of working on it, I feel it’s a great accomplishment to finish.
I LOVE this bag!
I am not necessarily a bag person, but after almost a year of going to the library with a plastic grocery bag, I decided to make a library bag.
Here is how mine turned out! I love it!
I love the colors and the fabric! I was able to get everything I needed from The Ribbon Retreat to finish this bag.
I used Riley Blake’s Rainy Days and Mondays Fabric.
Exterior – White Umbrella Tops
Top Panel – Green Rain Polka Dot
Lining - Green Raindrop Square
There are tons of new fabrics in at The Ribbon Retreat which I love. I must warn you that if you check them out, you will have to buy them because they are that cute!
Other things that I needed to complete this bag were –
It fits a ton of books, which is really important for a library bag, and it’s stylish. I can’t wait to tell the other moms at story time that I made it.
This was only my second time following a pattern, and I found this pattern to be so easy. I love the way Amy Butler patterns are. They really don’t assume you know everything. If you are a new sewer, then you will love it.
I lost the second page of my instructions so I had to just look at the bag on the cover and guess on finishing it. It turned out perfect, but I really need to get better at not losing stuff! Maybe when I move in 10 years I will find it. Maybe.
Now you all know the drill…
If you want this Frenchy Bag, now is the time to buy the pattern! And when you finish it, I would love to see pictures!
I loved all the comments on Ric Rac! I think my problem is that I don’t have a little girl. I will find a use for this Royal Blue Ric Rac though. I am thinking fabric blocks… hmm.
