I purchased a pattern about a year ago by Pink Sand Beach Designs, and cut out the pieces for it during quilt camp last summer, but didn't get a chance to sit down and sew it. After being at the quilt show last week and seeing the pattern on display at multiple vendors, I decided it was time to sit down and make it. (I really could have used it last week at the show!). This bag is called the Barbados Bag. It ends up about 9.5x11 inches, has multiple pockets (which I love) and is big enough for an iPad to fit inside. When I bought the pattern, I was thinking of that use primarily, but now that it is done I know I will use it as a purse as well. It is made with fusible fleece and decor bond interfacing so it is pretty sturdy. The main body of the bag and 1 pocket have zippers so there is security for the most important stuff.
