"Big Shaggy Bag"

I should have been  making those two other Easter purses I need to make BUT I wanted to make this quick bag from a pattern I got in Australia.  It is a very, quick project and I used a charm pack from Moda (At Water's Edge).  Love those muted fabrics.   I've just washed it once so it should fray more when used and washed more.

The pattern was a little different than what I've done before, as it is very flat--no inserts.  I thought it would be great for carrying patterns, papers, small sewing kits, etc.  Being an Australian pattern, all the measurements were in centimeters.  Ugh!!!  I converted and made some adjustments as I wanted to use the charm pack and everything turned out fine.  If you'd like to check out some other bag patterns plus other quilt patterns from this company in Australia, check out their site at:
