2012

The doctor bag is finished.



I made a couple of changes:  used a magnetic closer instead of velcro, added "feet" to the bottom of the bag; no ruffle on the front pocket; left an opening in the side seam to turn the bag through so that I could machine sew all around the top of the bag; sewed a divider on the inside pocket to hold a phone more securely; added a row of piping at the top of the outer pocket..

It's a great bag design and I love how the top opens up completely - makes it easier to find your stuff.

2012 has been a big year for our family.  Last April we celebrated The Wedding


and in less than 6 weeks we celebrate another wedding.

Lots of stitching, sewing, knitting, patchwork, quilting and blogging has happened here


and hopefully in 2013 there will be lots more of the same.
