Yes, I have made another bag!  You are shocked I realize…  This bag is named the Jelly Bag because the entire bag, with the exception of the lining, is made from jelly rolls!  When I started sewing this bag, it was going together so quickly and fun that I just kept going until I finished!  I usually stop and start a few times and go between projects for the store but this one was too fun to stop!  The directions are clear, concise and easy to follow.  I love the ombre effect that you can get by using the light, medium and dark shades that are included in most of the jelly rolls.  You can make 2 bags from just one jelly roll!  A total of 17 strips are needed for each bag.  What a great way to use your leftover stash!  The bag dimensions are: 16 ½ wide x 14 ½ tall.  It has two inside pockets and two decorative buttons on each side to cinch the bag in to a nice size.  We will take two classes to complete the bag so everyone can finish.  The cost of this class is $20 and you can click HERE for a link to the website to purchase the pattern.  The cost for the pattern is $8.50.  Come on down and join us for a Jelly Purse class!!
