Grab Bag

Last week, my husband and his friends are meeting up for their regular teh tarik session near my house. As their wives are also my sewing classmates, we decided to do this grab bag project.

Making this bag is a lot of fun, we really like this simple bag style and the pattern. We added pocket on the inside to hold little things such as business cards, cell phone, tissues and keys. This reversible handbag have two equal gorgeous side. Bags shown on the magazine photo above got one strap which is shorter than the other one but we altered the strap so that it can be in the same length. With this bag you will feel like having two bags instead of one. It was very quick and simple project, and only took about 2 hour to finish.

This bag pattern was featured in Fast and Fabulous Quilting Ideas by Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collections June 2008. This pattern also can be view from Martha Stewart’s website under Reversible Purse.

P/S The photo above is actually showing 3 bags, but 6 different patterns!!
