My oldest daughter, Jenn, starts the season of family birthdays with hers falling in mid-September. She lives out-of-state and far away but I wanted to do something 'homemade' and special for her.
Novita's Reversible Bag Pattern. Unbeknownst to her, I'd already been drooling over Yoshimi's versions of Novita's pattern that she'd made here and here. Eureka! This would be her 'homemade' birthday present.
Not knowing what fabric she might like, figured one couldn't go wrong with denim. The lining was a pretty quilting cotton I'd been using in my recent quilt blocks and had totally fallen in love with the color and design and thought it suited Jenn's personality.
I added an interior cell phone pocket.....
This is how I did her name.
Chose the font at proper size and printed it out on regular paper. You can see, below, how I cut out the basic shape then free-hand/traced it to my tear-away stabilizer.
It's an oh-so-cute bag that hopefully Jenn will enjoy and use.
