And the first bag of the new year is the Pockets of Plenty tote. This pattern is done by Whistle Pig Designs. I made it from the newest line from French General. It has a bit of a vintage feel to me. I accented the pocket with an old doily I have had stored in the sewing room for years. Something left from making dolls, so glad I keep so much junk! Then I added vintage buttons across the top band.
I would change just a few things on this bag. The inside pockets could come up a little. And I would probably leave the drawstring closure out and put a snap. It take to long to get inside the bag when you have to undo the ties. It makes it cute but not functionable for me. Just my preferecne.
