All-In-One Bag by Terryt1955
Home & Decoration
San Jose went bagless this year so I've made quite a few of these utilitarian bags. My daughters hang them over their closet doorknob to keep their clothes off the floor (and why didn't I think of this when they were younger) in between trips to the store. It's a good size bag with a 6" gusset (is that the right word?) at it's base so one can really pack a lot of stuff (like beach towels). The original pattern had you lining it with interfacing but I didn't like that unfinished look so I fuse 2 sided interfacing and then pick out a cute contrasting lining and add a couple of pockets for the cell phones and keys.
This bag is going to one of their friends who always remarks how she loves their bags and wishes her mom would break out her sewing machine again. She is graduating next week so I'll surprise her with a bag and 2 pillows for her bed (if I get my act together).
