Classmate Bag

Hi all -

As usual, I got a little side-tracked and made a little bag. For this bag, I used the "Classmate" pattern from Atkinson Designs. This is a pretty cool pattern with a lot of useful pockets. Here's the outside of the bag:

 And the inside:

I thought this might be a fun bag to take to my classes in Houston. If I make this bag again, I think I will probably add a zipper pocket on the outside so I can get at some stuff from the outside without opening the bag. The instructions for this bag were good and it went together quickly.

I've continued to work on my FMQ challenge wallhanging and I might be done with the quilting on that one. I have to look at it for a little while to decide if it needs more. I'll share pictures when that one is finished.

Next week is looking to be a good one. It's my birthday week so I have several fun things planned. First is lunch with some friends on Monday. Then, my new sewing table is going to be delivered on Tuesday. It's coming in right on time, but it sure seems like forever since I ordered it! Then lunch and a movie with a friend on Wednesday, and meeting up with two other friends on Thursday at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival. Friday will be a day to spend at home with the pets, skipping work to finish off a wonderful week.



  1. Hi Nancy, I love to make things like this little bag and I made something similar using a Nancy Zieman instruction for my trip to Houston last year. I hope you have fun in Houston. I'm not going to get there this year, but my quilt is. Chers, BJ

    1. Thanks! Sorry I won't see you there, but look forward to seeing your quilt.

  2. Nancy,
    Have a great Birthday Week! Love your bag
