I was inspired by this Jelly Roll Rug…and well you know I have a thing for Bags…So I thought of creating my own bag with the same method.
So a customer at work had her quilt quilted and did not need the extra fabric that we usually have to cut off to straighten the quilt. She gave all that to me. It already had some of the batting sewn on to the strips that I cut into 2,5″ strips. Yes I know it has some of the sewing from quilting on the strips ….That doesn’t bother me at all. I find it adds the uniqueness to this bag.
I had some fabric that was perfect in colour to make my sided and leather handles that oh yes are just perfect for this bag too. Love the green and brown together…
Hope to have this pattern soon available for You too to make your fun bag too and see where it will go….
I have put together a view videos in sections so hopefully this will make it easier to knit Your next Entrelac project too. I have still one more video section to do and that would be:

This knitting technic called Entrelac is not as difficult as You may think it is….
I have put a little video together on how to work the block on the right side on how to merge the two sections together….
I will be working on a view more videos in the next view days, that will show you how to Merge the sections together on the purl side. And hopefully also the two triangle section on each side. The last row with all the casting off triangles …..Yes then off to the sleeves and the collar.
So please visit for More Videos to follow soon….and Hope to have pattern available for this Cardi Entrelac Style soon too.

The list goes on

All I ask be kind and no critiquing members work…we all are at different levels and have the “Passion For Creating”
Yehhh I finished this bag ….after 3 days of sewing….I did it!!!
The pattern is at it original way a Sewing Bag…
I like it, but since I would never use the ironing pad on it. I decided to alter this up…
followed the pattern (except for iron pad) ….till I came to outer panels.
I tell You I am glad I have a workhorse fo a sewing machine, Janome MC6500 . I used faux Suede and the interfacing was heavy too. Would go lighter next time in my choice of Interfacing or Stabilizer.
Then I was not sure where I had gone wrong? Somehow I ended up with two the same with outer fabric 1 facing out and second 1 facing in….NOOOOO!!! Why is that I ask?
Off to my modifications working a side panel like in the “Sew Together Bag”. Only to realize that now the bag front and back are falling way to much open.
OK, what next was my question? Lets turn bag inside out and make more pockets…LOL
Perfect !!! FINISHED HUwww…
So I am looking forward to seeing the once worked up at the store…It is the first bag I have put together that has lots of zippers, pockets and folder slots.
I think this will be a great bag to go travel with. Perfect for Passports, Travel documents and yes even my DSL Camera should fit in to my modified bag…
Happy with the end result….yes not perfect with all the exact precise measures….I like it and I managed to sew it up on my own (Embroidery section for Front pocket is a sample that was going into the garbage!)
Smiles and I get to make another one too….;-)))))
