The Window Bag

Woo Hoo!!  The bag I first started working on on our Sequoia trip last year is finally done! 

The pattern was fast and easy and perfect for the many hours drive up and back to Sequoia.  Felting came and went lickety split... but, I got stuck on finding the right material for the blanket stitching that goes around the handles and the windows (those cute circles)! 

Then, I kept hedging on actually sewing in the fabric... this pretty pretty stuff from Superbuzzy that I couldn't bring myself to cut into.

This past week, I was preparing for another bag project and realized this UFO needed to be finished.  About 1/2 an hour later, it was done!  Yay!!!

I have already started and finished another project out of this book that I need to blog about, but here is the info on this one.
