Woo hoo, I have a finished bag. The Open Wide Bag, I was making my sister is completed.
This was the first time I had used soft and stable, I really like how the bag holds it's shape. I made the large bag which is approximately 9" x 12" x 6", and omitted the front contrasting fabric panel, because I didn't want to lose any of that beautiful Kaffe print. I may make another one in the medium size for me, and would increase the binding width to 2.25" for the binding around the zipper, which I think would fit slightly better.
Overall, I am really pleased with how it has turned out. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed making bags (even if they do cause a little bit of bad language to be muttered). I think my sister was planning to use it for crochet projects, and it looks as though it will hold quite a lot. Now to package it up and post it off to Australia with some treats for her.
