I wanted a big bag for my trip to NYC. One that would hold all my airplane stuff, but mostly one big enough to carry around souvenirs without looking like a total tourist. This was perfect. Now I use it to carry all our church stuff...blankies, sippy cups, diapers, books, toys; and for antique outings, or to the zoo.
I have to fix some things with the design. If you look close you can see the ripple at the seams where the seam allowance doesn't stick to the stabilizer...so I need to think about a solution for that.
