I dug into my stash of Kate Spain's Good Fortune to make by BFF a "Spa Bag" for her birthday.
I used Elizabeth Hartman's quilted panel tutorial - which worked like a dream, and was a fun free lance quilting exercise for my right brain. The quilted panels (I made 2, one for each side of the bag) end up being covered with an inner lining, so the messy backside isn't seen at all. What is seen is the fabulous fabric patterns on the quilted panels.
I added an inside pocket and kept the lining light and bright, because (in my experience) the inside of bags do have a tendency to form black holes.
I linked up here, just for fun!
