happy bag

Patterns can be stifling.  Not all the time, but sometimes.  Do not be afraid to tweak things to your style!  Bags & totes make a great canvas for your groovy ideas.

The pictured happy bag is quite floppy, so add stiffening for a little shape stability.

The cute birdies are appliqued fabric cut-outs, embellished with beads.

Use old jeans pockets on the interior of bag.  Sew vertical lines to make separate compartments for pens, chapstick, phone, etc..
