MONDO Bag Diaper Bag by Honeysewsew
I saw the "MONDO BAG" at a fabric/yarn shop in Maryland and became obsessed with the concept. Found instructions on google after searching for directions...so this bag is my first try. Echino fabric (instead of 2-1/2" squares). It came out quite nice, it's an interesting pattern, a bit challenging but finally figured it out. The only thing I eliminated was the fusible fleece. However, I did everything else as directed. I'm most happy that I now understand how to do lining invisibly. I never could figure it out previously. Very happy with the results.
I had enough leftover to piece together a little zippered clutch, and still have scraps which I will use to make a small drawstring "knitting-project" bag.
Keep in mind it is a HUGE bag. I'm going to try to reduce the pattern by 25% for the next bag, any suggestions are welcomed, for making it smaller, but still a shoulder bag.
