Reversible Bag

{ If you subscribe, you got the first bit of this post already thanks to my 2 year old, who cleverly figured out how to publish a post, while I was working on it.} 

This simple bag was inspired by drawstring bags. I have always liked the simplicity of drawstring bags.  I was doodling around one day, trying to figure out how to make a drawstring bag have a more grown-up look, but still keeping the casual side also....and slowly this bag began to take shape. The drawing has been sitting around for a while and I even forgot about it, until recently I came across my notes (thank goodness for early spring cleaning!) Finally I sat down to make the pattern and a bag. As I was picking the fabric from my stash, I had a hard time choosing. I loved the yellow and the gray fabric too. Sometimes being indecisive works out great, because after spending too much time on trying to figure out if I wanted the mustard yellow linen on the outside or the gray canvas on the outside, it was easier to alter the original pattern to make the bag reversible.
