I'm so excited!

I've been working on this bag for a week. I've torn out all the stitching 3 times. I only had this tiny piece of fabric and didn't want to waste it. This is the first time I've done a set in zipper (with no instructions) and the second time to put in a zipper at all! I re-did that several times. The tote was a special order so I just couldn't give up. My daughter had some corrugated plastic so I made a bottom for the bag also. For a zipper pull, I used part of a black shoestring. If anyone has any of this fabric left I'd sure be interested in buying it. It is called "Bug" by Timeless Treasures and is probably 3 to 5 years old. I can't remember when I bought it. You can see the size of this bag if you look at the musical bag hanging on my daughter's shoulder a couple posts below. It's the same pattern modified.

You did a terrific job with the bag. Love the colours. My mum has made a few bags. Mum made one for me the other week. I posted a picture on my blog.
