I decided to break down and buy a store bought pattern tonight for a bag that had lots of pockets similar to what I had in mind.
Well, let me tell you, I am very disappointed. The pattern doesn't call for any interfacing, batting or lining. YET it incorporates a zipper along the top. I love the zipper part BUT the fact that the bag is nothing but a single layer of fabric just doesn't seem to me to be a "finished" project.
Maybe it's just me, being a quilter by heart, everything is done in layers.
So, as a result, I am back to square one as originally planned and making it all up as I go. I did bring a pad of paper and a pencil though to write measurements down, etc. as I go along....something I am terrible about doing.
On that note, I will call it a night and dream sweet dreams of fabric, designs and all that fun stuff.
