It's done peeps!
And I went with ORANGE piping!
That was because it was the only piping I had that actually matched a color in the bag. It's lined with canvas to give it some structure. I was going to try a zippered pocket, but ran out of time.
It's Simplicity 8331 from the 90's.
The fabric is Timeless Treasures. I bought a half yard on ebay. Little scraps are left. This fabric was not printed on grain, and it veered off toward the edges. So it's not perfectly, er, level. Also I had to make the bag handles in different directions due to lack o' fabric.
I've made one of these bags for each PR weekend I've attended. and one for Christmas.
