I put together this bag back in June of '05. I had purchased the kit at a large quilting expo, but later ended up actually going to the store that made up the kits, which is down in the Columbus (OH) area. I had the kit for awhile before attempting to make it. At the time I didn't really feel like my sewing skills were very good - but I started to gain a little more confidence after the way this bag turned out.
A couple of years later I purchased another kit, a little smaller this time, to make a bag for my mother-in-law to use for her stitching stuff.
