Today I finished the first bag I made using a proper pattern. I had to change the design a bit because I did not have all the accessories and did not want to spend too much money on it but I think it turned out really well. I am quite proud of it. The bag is a bit smaller than the ones I normally use but I have started using a bag organiser insert and that fits nicely. I think this bag will be great for summer or maybe a Christmas present? I will have to think about this. Anyway, I got the free pattern from http://blog.chriswdesigns.com/ and as the instructions are very clear and easy to follow I think, I may try another one of theirs.
