My mom is incredibly generous with her time and often gets called in for "grandma duty." She requested that I make her a new Chubby Charmer bag for her swimming gear as she swims every day with her friends. I had her pick out the fabrics that she loved and got to work making her a new bag.
Note: I hate this pattern. I do not recommend it. It is poorly written and there are ways I would change the pattern. I forgot since the last time I made her one of these bags. But once I was in, I had to persevere.
|I quilted the outside panels to give some additional structure. (Isn't that sand piper cute?)|
|The handles are very sturdy because of the fusible fleece inside and the extra quilting.|
|This was a great use for my Wonder Clips. This was a lot of layers and I had a few issues with the needle skipping stitches. I switched out to a fresh new needles and slowed down a lot and that helped immensely.|
She loved the bag and can't wait to show it off to her friends. For all the free babysitting she does, this bag was the least I could do!
