Yes, it is another Kennedy Bag! I just love this pattern by Sarah Lawson from Sew Sweetness. It is actually a free pattern she offers, so check it out! I always feel so satisfied when I am finished with one of these bags. The buckles still frustrate me a bit, but it is all worth it!
I love the look of the fabric on this bag. It is a home decor fabric from JoAnn's Hobby Lobby. I think the gray is a bottomweight fabric and it feels kind of smooth and almost silky. I love it!
Aren't polka dots so much fun?! I don't think you can ever outgrow polka dots.
I think this is the first time I have actually put in the side buckles for this bag, exactly like the pattern says. OH-and look at this cute metal bag label that says, "handmade". I got this from Janelle at Emmaline Bags! She has other label that say, "handmade-Made in the USA"! I really wanted one, but I decided to go with the least expensive label since it's something I really don't HAVE to have. I just wanted to try them just once.
It's just one more touch that makes the bag look a little less 'home' made, and little more "ooh la la".
I'm still amazed that this bag can hold an iPad AND a laptop! I did add two extra layers of fusible fleece to the inside zipper pocket in order to give the iPad some added protection.
I finally added a key holder! This really is a must for any bag. I don't know anyone that does not have problems locating their keys in their purse.
Check out my new Gina's Craft Corner fabric label!! I did this myself! Hopefully I'll have a tutorial to share with you soon.
I had to come back into this post and add this picture (7/21/14)! It's the best part of the bag. I saw a bag recently loaded with purse feet and I just thought it looked SO cute. The polka dots lined up perfectly to try it out on this bag. Do you like it? I LOVE it!! I wish I could have gotten a better picture.
So, what do you think? This bag is going into my recently opened Etsy shop: GCCginascraftcorner! I'd love for you to stop by and visit me!
I'll be linking up to THESE great parties this week!
