Mama's Got A Brand New Bag!

It's the truth that one thing always leads to another!  I found a lovely green wallet on sale that I couldn't resist, but that purchase meant that I needed a new bag to match.  I didn't have a pattern, only an idea in my mind of what I wanted.  I simply stitched some 2" Civil War Reproduction strips together, quilted the pieces in a 1/2" grid, added a pretty green lining and scrappy handles, then finished it off with a vintage button closure.  It turned out just as I had hoped it would and I couldn't be happier with my new bag!
