I used a contrasting "pink bubbles" fabric for the pockets, the lining and the side of the bag. You can see the pockets here slightly hidden by Miss Strawberry Shortcake's favorite friend.
and now the front of the bag with the 2 pockets.
And finally a Big Girl proudly showing off her bag and happy to have join the Big Kids at Playgroup!
I was lucky enough to be a winner on the Bloggers' Quilt Festival organised by Amy last week. I won the "Versatile Messenger Bag pattern" offered by Candied Fabrics. Surely, I'll have to make yet another Messenger Bag soon to try out the pattern now.
