On the outside, I used a decorator-weight cotton fabric. Stitching in a contrast color shows off some of the details.
The inside is lined with a quilting cotton in polka dots (my fave). I added a few pockets for some essentials and a clasp to hold things like keys so you don't have to dig around the bottom of the bag.
I like that the bag is flexible, but you could easily add fusible fleece or interfacing to give it more structure.
I have one more bag to share with you from the handmade Christmas list, which I will do tomorrow. I'm off to play in the snow with the kiddos.
