the catch all

This bag will be under the tree this Christmas for our oldest daughter. I hope it will be the bag she grabs as she goes out the door. Maybe to throw in her snack, water bottle and vest for skating. Maybe to throw in her tap and jazz shoes on a Saturday morning.
The bag is quite roomy. The finished dimensions are 13x12x10" (without the straps). At first it doesn't sound big but it should easily hold the things she will need it for.
The polka dot fabric actually has blue dots on it. For some reason they seem really white to me in the pictures.
I found the pattern called "Daisy Dazzler" in the Quilts and More Fall 2009 magazine. You can find a link to the pattern online.

I love the baggy-ness of this bag. It would definitely be my bag of choice! And the aqua blue / brown combo looks so great together. I have a co-worker who has a Vera Bradley bag with that color combination and I just love it.

I love the bag! I feel guilty--I usually make bags for my daughters to give as birthday presents, but neither of them has a bag! Another last minute project, perhaps?

I really like this bag! I may have to make one. Looks like it could hold quite a few balls of yarn and some knitting needles. Beautiful job!
