Hampton weekend bag by V and Co.

DSCN7436I saw this navy Simply Style chevron fabric  in the quilt shop and this bag pattern and I just had to make it.  The finished bag is about 16″ by 18″.   This pattern was easy to follow.  I did make some modifications to the bag.  The pattern did not use any fleece or interfacing.  So I added fusible fleece to the outside bag and shape flex to the lining of the bag.  I also added some extra pockets on the inside.  I decided to make the strap adjustable so I needed to find some purse hardware.  Mary had an old purse with the just the hardware that I needed.  The bag has a magnetic snap at the top.  Great bag with lots of room inside for a weekend trip.  I bought another Simply Style chevron in grey to make another bag with purple lining.  Have fun sewing.
