This is my Northern Solitude Charm Bag. I made it for DIL 3. She chose the charm pack by Moda.
The handles are also made from charm squares. I put dark ones at the top to help hide dirt. The bag I am carrying now has while handles. It needs to be washed often. I decided not to use light colors for handles again. (I hope I remember.) I also did several lines of quilting on the handles. I like the look.
The inside of this bag is the best inside pocket job I have ever done. I helped my sisters make bags from a diaper bag pattern. I liked the pocket style so much that I used it in this bag.
I included a closing pocket in this bag.
I am a beginning quilter. This is my first project with this pattern on it.
This is the other side of the bag.
Side one view. When I went to the quilt store to buy a coordinating fabric for the top band, I found this. It wasn't the color I went to the store to buy, but when we put this color by the charm squares that were sewn together, it was the color that gave the bag it's POP.
