I did it - I put my Lilly squares to use! Simple, colorful, fun - my kind of bag, for sure. Honestly, I'm surprised that I finished it as quickly as I did because follow through hasn't exactly been my strong suit lately. I suppose really liking the project had everything to do with it :) And just maybe now that I'm well planted in my 2nd trimester a teensy bit of energy is returning. Maybe.
You don't have to worry about me not using this one. All my stuff is already in there. I even got crazy and added 2 pockets in the inside. I don't have a problem with pockets, really, but I'm usually too lazy to make two.
See how I incorporated the woven element in this bag? After my little brain storming session on my last bag post about using straw bags in the summer I had to do it. Thankfully, I remembered that I had these straw colored burlap straps in my stash (already made up) that turned out to be perfect. To carry that theme further, I added some flat burlap "piping" in the seams. I suppose I can't really call it piping because there is no cording in there, but you get the idea!
Okay summer, now that I have my summer bag you can begin! TGIF and Happy Memorial Day weekend friends!
