A bag from leftovers

No matter how accurately you try to estimate how much fabric you'll need for a quilt (and don't even get me started on the estimated fabric yardages given in EQ!), somehow the scrap basket always stays full. This little bag is a great way to have fun with the leftovers. It's a free pattern given on the AllPeopleQuilt website (http://allpeoplequilt.com/quarterlychallenge/APQ_QtrlyChal3.pdf), and it's pretty easy to make. This is coming from someone who's not so great at following someone else's patterns! Although I did actually make a couple of small changes to the pattern such as making the pockets a little deeper and squaring up the bottom of the bag.

Here's how I used some leftovers from Mark Lipinski's Krakow line. For those who recognize fabrics, there are a few pieces from his previous line of fabric, Califon. It matches so nicely. I love it when different fabric lines can be used together.

Here's the other side. It's fun mixing up the fabrics.

Loop the longer strap through the small one and off you go. Pockets galore inside! And if it gets dirty, just throw it in the washer and dryer.
