First Finish for 2010

This is my first finish for 2010!

This isn't a quilt, but I am counting it as a finish anyway.

This bag was made a week ago as an early birthday present for my mom. I have made these bags before, but this is the first time I have made one with a zipper top.

The base of the bag is denim and the straps are webbing--going all the way down the side of the bag. The materials used make this a sturdy bag that will withstand heavy items such as books.

I love the colours you have used.
Bags are great gifts. Well done for finish # 1.

It's beautiful. Did you use a pattern or just wing it? I understand that big bags are all the style these days so your mother will be very fashionable.

WOOHOO! A finish but I know you are close to another cross off soon.

This turned out very pretty and sturdy. Perfect for your Mom's upcoming trip.

Beautiful! I love a good, sturdy bag. Must be big because I am always toting stuff for my 6 year old. And MUST zip or else you just know that I will drop it. A tip for plane travel - I sort the insides of my big bag into ziplock bags so it is easier to get through security. Boys & their treasures can sometimes take time to clear security, but no more! Cheers! Evelyn
