Old Pattern, New Bag

Oh my goodness! I have a feeling that my blogging time this summer is being traded in for swimming, scouts and fun with the kids! Honestly, I am not complaining. As much as I love to blog, my blog will always be here, my kids won't be kids forever! So, thanks for being so patient for a new post! :)

All of those of us that enjoy to sew probably have a ton of patterns in their stash to "one day" make. I have kinda a personal goal this make some of those patterns! Here is a pattern that I had in my stash to make "one day".

It is Simplicity 2357, view A. When I first saw this pattern I fell in love with the brown and turquoise. So...this is my version... 
This is the front of the bag. I kept it kinda neutral with the tan and brown, but added a pop of turquoise to the bag in the trim and handle. 
This is the back of the bag. If you noticed, the fabric is opposite of the front of the bag. I have to say, I like it a lot. 
The fabric is a linen look. 
The bag measures 13 inches wide and 23 inches high, including handle.

The bag was actually very easy to make. The worse part is cutting out the pattern! I think the bag will be good for early fall....

Happy Thursday!
