I won Emmmy Lizzzy’s giveaway for Made by Rae‘s Showoff Bag Pattern… and now I’m showing it off! Hurk hurk. 😀

The pattern is great: the instructions are easy to follow and the tips sprinkled throughout are really helpful. I was impressed at how each piece used up almost all of the yardage that was called for with very little waste. It was a good thing that I had full yards of my exterior and interior fabrics, though, since they’re directional. The exterior fabric is from Superbuzzy; I love the little squirrel and hedgehog having tea!

I added an interior zipper pocket by following U-Handbag’s great tutorial and widened the recommended regular pocket so that I could split it in two. Yay for pockets!

My topstitching leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s okay since this bag is for me. Heh, heh.

Thanks, Emmmy Lizzy and Rae, for giving me such a fun pattern to play with!
