Gift #1 - Sporty Bag

Or maybe this is Gift #2, since the sewing kit was gift #1. But this was the first of two handmade gifts. Anyway, it doesn't matter. :)

Yep, I'm still a bag lady. Bags are my favorite things to sew, I guess, although doll clothes run a close second. (Gee, how'd we get to the first and second thing again so fast?!) This is a little Sporty Bag, as the pattern called it. It has a flat pocket on one side:

And a gathered pocket on the other side:

It's not lined, but there's a pretty, removable insert in the bottom for a sturdy base:

I bet that photo above gave you a clue to its size!

Here's another clue... that's a barrette on the pocket:

The bag is about THIS size:

So cute, huh? It's from another Liberty Jane pattern that was featured in a recent LJ newsletter and I found just too cute to resist. It was a quick, easy sew. The main fabrics are scraps from Jess's Amusement Park line, Parade and Fireworks.

Any guesses as to what I put inside the bag? Come back tomorrow and find out! ;)

Adorable! Is the doll getting a snowsuit, a hat, scarf and mittens?

Thanks! Um... nope. That's what she SHOULD be getting for this ugly winter, though!

Work out gear - shorts, hoodie, pant suit with zip jacket?
Swim suit?

You're closer, Becky! ;)
