Birdie Runaround Run Around Bag by Speattle
I finished this up today, after starting it last night. I didn't have the right color zipper, so it had to wait till today.
I bought this fabric about a month ago with the intent of using it for this bag. It is a gorgeous print and I had to be careful of the placement of elements in the design so they would be symmetrical.
This is the 5th time I have made this pattern and I like to finish it a bit differently inside than how the directions specify. I found that if I change the order in which the layers are sewn together, I can end up with no raw seams inside. This involves a short bit of hand stitching, but the end result is a much neater appearance to the inside of the bag.
Also, I put a piece of Warm and Natural batting inside each piece of the pattern to give the bag a bit more structure.
The pattern is fine as written, but I just like to mess with things!
