Satchel for Sharon

I have two great daughters; they're adults, of course, and they rarely ask for anything.  The quilt top I just finished was a rare request from Carrie, my blogging daughter, who lives in NC.  On Thanksgiving, Sharon, who lives in Orange County, said, "Whenever you have some spare time, would you make me a bag?"  Bob and I both laughed because I keep busy and never seem to have any spare time.  But my daughters are a priority; and while I was working on the last project, Sharon and I emailed back and forth about what kind of bag she wanted.  She didn't want the first four I proposed, they weren't exactly "it" and not large enough.  I hit the jackpot with this bag, except it was smaller than she desired.


I've spent this morning drafting a pattern for a larger bag, and I've decided to add an inside pocket.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my figures will work.  Here's the fabric I've chosen:

I thought it'd be a great weight for the bag, and I won't need to add interfacing.  It's organic cotton canvas from Cloud 9.
May your bobbins always be full,
