After making a few pencil pouches, I still had piles of scrap fabric. Most of the fabric was left over from a rag quilt that was made smaller than expected.
Since I had rag quilts on the brain, I figured, why not a rag quilted bag!
The fun fabric, with a sea shore theme, instantly made me think of sunny days at the beach.
The ragged edges from the quilting give the bag a vintage look that pairs well with sun bonnets and sandals.
The inside has a clean finish, but maintains the patchwork look.
To get this look I simply made two mini rag quilts, sewed them together at the bottom and sides, boxed the corners, and added grommets and cord handles.
For a quick weekend project, I was very pleased with how this bag turned out.
