This was my first attempt at a bag with a flap. No pattern. Just kind of winged it. I forgot to sew the pocket in before I sewed the lining, so a bit of ripping had to occur before the pocket could be sewn in place. The result of my oopsie is a wonky inner pocket. From the outside it looks ok :)

I also got a package from eBay containing this:


Joe was home for lunch when it arrived and he wasn't nearly as excited about it as I am. When he asked what I was going to do with it I told him I had "secret plans" for it. He just rolled his eyes. I do have plans for this fabric. You'll have to wait and see what they are.

OGA coolie sales are going well...so well in fact that I'm going to make some more this evening using these fabrics:
