January's Bag of the Month


In December I posted about joining the Bag of the Month Club started by Sew Sweetness.  On January first, bright and early, I received the first pattern.  The name of the pattern is the Bye Bye Love Bag by Sara herself.  I wasn't quite sure if I would like the bag for myself but, boy oh boy, was I mistaken!!  I LOVE THIS BAG!  It makes the perfect bag for work.  It is nice and roomy with gobs of pockets inside and out.  A girlfriend ordered one to take to the beach for all her lotions and potions and towels.  I never thought to use it as a beach bag but it would be PERFECT to use for that!!  anyway, here is my version of the Bye Bye Love bag....

I made my version from outdoor fabric so it wouldn't matter if it got rained on while walking into work.  I really love how it turned out!  My one tip for using outdoor fabric would be to iron on the fusible interfacing before cutting!!  I have gotten tons of compliments on this bag and no one can believe it is homemade.  So THANK YOU SARA for helping me to impress everyone with your wonderful bag!!!

Here is a pic of the inside full of work stuff (minus the Kindle Fire full of games!!!).
I highly recommend joining this club to any and all bag makers!  Have a fabulous day everyone!


  1. I LOVE your version Robin! Great work!! :)

  2. Your bag is beautiful. Love the fabric. I've still to make mine and at the rate I'm going I think it will get made in February.
