Boho Cat Bag – Yes, I said Boho Cat Bag!

No other name really fits…..
Boho Cat Bag
I have had this divine Jolie Pomme fabric sitting on my shelf for over a year.  It came straight from Tokyo in The Great Fabric Haul of 2013.  And today, it was plucked off said shelf for project “make a gift for my 16 year old God-daughter”.  I used THIS tutorial by Thimble – it was very straight forward and dare I say – simple!

The quirky detail in the fabric is just amazing.  Dancing cats and bunnies wearing scarves – Love!

I popped in to Spotlight this morning and grabbed some of their $1 Fat Quarters – this bag used almost two FQ’s of the green chevron for the handles and top part and about 2/3 yard of outer fabric and lining fabric.  The lining is a gorgeous stripe that was also at Spotlight in the $4 clearance quilting fabric pile!  I think it may even be a little on the “organic” side.  Winning.

I added a little zipper pocket on the inside using my tutorial HERE, instead of the pocket included in the Thimble tutorial.  The thread is a divine Aurifil Green #5017  I picked up last time I was there.  It was one of those “jump out and grab you” kind of colours, that I really had no plans for – but it was PERFECT for today!  Here’s hoping the teenager loves this bag as much as I do!
I’m linking up – You can too!
