Bid on this bag by leaving your name and a bid in the comments section. Bidding starts at $25 and increases by whole $s please. Highest bidder at 9pm (PST) / 10pm (MST) on Saturday, March 7th gets the BAG! Postage extra.

Grace for the Moment #2 is made from one of the fabulous fabrics (over $100 per yd) donated by Cheryl – Thanks! It is from Belgium and is called Symphony - Blue Agate. It is 70% viscose and 30% cotton and has a raised pile in a zigzag design.

The flap features a braid bow in coordinating colors, on brown velvet with the top in blue and brown fabric. The front is the main fabric with a pocket trimmed with braid and is made of a contrasting striped fabric.

The back of the bag is brown, heavy cotton and has a triple pocket of the main fabric, topped in brown velvet with a daisy patterned fabric for added interest. The sides, bottom and under strap are brown cotton. I top stitched in blue for a fun contrast.

I used pieces of all the fabrics on the strap to tie it all together. The strap measures 48 ½”, a little longer than usual, and is all one piece – no knot.

I had fun sewing the lining using the striped fabric on the diagonal on the under flap and pieces of brown, daisy patterned cotton blend with a striped piece in between. The four pockets in the lining are fuller than the usual pockets for easier access. The pockets are a sturdy striped cotton topped with daisies.

The bag measures 13" x 11" x 2½", a little smaller than our regular bag.

Editor's Note: The attention to detail in this bag is amazing. Exquisite work Grace!
