It has been very hot and humid here this week so I took a bit of a break from quilting to make this bag. It is from an old McCalls pattern that I have had forever. I made dozens of bags using this pattern and old Jeans. The front pocket was the back pocket of the jeans. This time I used quilting fabric and the blue is some batik that I made awhile ago. It has only one strap. I was going to make it a backpack with two straps but I made a mistake putting on the rings to fasten the straps to. For some reason I put two at the top and one at the bottom, which is the opposite to what it should be. It was fairly easy to change the top to one ring but it would have meant major surgery to change the bottom, so, only one strap .
