The Bellagio Bag - Sort of!
Decided to make a purse using the Bellagio Bag pattern from Studio Kat Designs. I didn't want the binding over the seams, so I put it together differently, which cause some problems with the zipper portion. But I finally got things to behave themselves.
I used some Bali Pops to piece the outer pockets (I put this on both sides, which is different from the pattern, too). It needed something more and I remembered a design that Amanda Whitlatch did when she was making the Software Sampler Videos for Bernina. This was from Lesson 7, 2014. I shrunk it down to fit the pocket area, but I love how it looks over the pieced strips.
