Rare poster

Hi all, I rarely post because it takes me so long to get anything done that I usually don't make the deadlines. But here I am ahead, because I just finished this bag. Its from Amy Butler's new sewing book. The pattern was challenging, but easy to follow with lots of directions. I actually used a quilt top that I bought at a flea market. I love the rectangular shape and it holds knitting projects easily. Its lined, but I won't show a picture of that part - its not great (but it works).
