The Convertible Bag.....

Here is my 3rd Bag of the Month finished.....  I must say I really liked this pattern!  If you want the pattern it will most likely will be for sale after June/July when the Bag of the Month wraps up!  You can go to At Home with Mrs. H ......  she is the author of this pattern.   This was a super easy to make pattern!  I also used Annie's Soft and Stable for the first time, and while it is pricey it makes a huge difference and is so much easier to work with than the heavy Peltex!   After looking all over for Annie's Soft and Stable locally I found it right across the Mississippi from me at the quilt shop!   I will use it on all of my purses.  The only thing I really did different is I am a believer in interfacing and I used a medium weight fusible interfacing on the straps and tabs I really feel it gives the finished  look to the purse/purses!!!

I will say that the hardest thing about the bags is trying to buy the hardware locally!  By the time I go from store to store to find exactly what I am looking for to no avail I am better off ordering off the internet!

So here is my Convertible Bag ... with the hardware on this bag it can be made into a Backpack quickly!!

You cannot see it but there is room for your wallet, there is also 2 pockets and a hidden zip pocket on the inside of the bag!  Plus the outside pocket and the outside hidden zip pocket!

Happy Rainy Friday!!  Be Blessed in a big way!  Nancy
