I'm headed to Dallas on Friday for my best friend's bachelorette party so I decided to make a new bag. With all the new regulations/fees on checked baggage, I need to make the most of my carry-ons! This is a Simplicity pattern. I think the pattern instructions could use some work so I made a few modifications. I really love this big Garden Party print for the outside! I didn't have enough of the Anna Maria Horner print for the undersides of the straps, so I used my lining fabric. I wimped out and didn't put a zippered pocket in. This had more to do with my reluctance to cut any more fabric than dealing with a zipper. I have a super easy method to install large zippered pockets into almost any bag pattern. Maybe I'll do a post on that. I wish I would have made a second one to give my friend *doh*! Coulda, shoulda, woulda!
