Bandana Beauty Bag

Every once in a while I need to do something different.  I love sewing just about anything, but need a little variety.  When I got this fabric, and a few other coordinating pieces, I set them aside to make some purses.  I love the design of this purse, but don't like the directions that much.  I usually adapt and change most of them, but it's been a while since I did this particular pattern, and couldn't remember what I had changed, except for the water bottle pocket.  Some directions just need to be edited by someone who reads and knows how to sew!!

I'm going to make notes for the next time I use the overall design.  

These fabrics were called Bandana Beauties by Benartex.  When you just see them as fabrics, you may not see the coordination, but now that they are together, they really play well as a pair! 

And just to be funny, I hung them from the mouth on my tree face.  I think the tree likes it!  lol. 

I did cut out a different color combo for the same bag.  I need to take Aurifil 50wt 4020 (yummy hot pink) off and put on the bronzy tan thread. 

It's listed on Etsy.  Do you want one in a different color combo?
