I did it! I finished my second UFO for the 13 in 2013 UFO Challenge I am participating in.
Presenting this beautiful messenger bag. It is also a drum bag to hold a native hand drum.
|This is the back of the bag. If you look closely you can see a circle in the bottom center part of the bag. This is an eagle that I close-up on and describe more about below.|
|This is the front. I like how the thread of the diagonal lines I quilted have it blend in and not take away from the flow of the pattern on the fabric.|
|The view from the side shows a long, narrow, lined pocket. I made this to hold drum sticks but I suppse a small cell phone or other items could be stored here also.|
|The drum fits perfectly in this bag. I suppose it could be a little more snug and I could adjust that in future editions.|
|Here is the bag without the drum inside.|
|Again, without the drum inside. Also notice the extra long, padded and quilted handle. It lets the bag sit on your hips to hold the bulk of a filled bag.|
