Busy Summer!

This bag is another Lazy Girl Design -Sassy! I just had to add the yo-yo detail to the front and back. I used the strip quilt foundation method because I am not good at choosing just one fabric. The directions are very clear. Make this bag; I recommend it.
This bag just screams summer. This is a modified Betty Shopper by Amy Butler. Say hi Pepper.

I used a tablecloth for the outside of the bag, and I bought it at Target for $2.98. The inside of the bag is lined with yellow, bandanna fabric and the pockets are made of a fun, yellow, strawberry print. I found this pattern diffidult to sew. That is why it is the modified Betty Shopper. I was unable to figure out the Timtex bottom, so I cut it out and finished it like a regular bookbag. This bag is very large! Pepper looks cute sitting in the bag. Overall, I am very happy with this sewing project. What a fun bag to carry around.

You can't forget the yo-yo detail. I cut this yo-yo out using the OLFA circle cutting tool on its largest setting. I so love this tool! Happy sewing!
