Santas Got a Brand New Bag #2

Santa Bag is finished.  I will start carrying it on Thanksgiving.  At least I was ahead of the game for a change! 

No pattern for this bag.  It came out of my head when I made the first one for my daughter.  I quilted red satin fabric with red rayon thread to PellonFleece and then cut out the pieces.  For stiffness, I used Peltex. There are pockets on each side for phones and glasses.  There's a rhinestone key fob on one side (gotta have a little bling)!  White fur balls hang from red satin ribbons, and trim around the top in white fur, taken from Santa hats.  There's a "G" ornament hanging also, from red satin ribbon.   Red and white candy-cane stripe handles that I found online.  Zipped top with rhinestone zipper pull.  Stacked buttons used for feet.  And red satin lining, with a zipper pocket.  Here it is.

Side with key fob:

                                                                          Inside:


The tables and hardwood floors are dusty.  Laundry is backed up and I haven't cooked a good meal for a couple of days.  But the important things are done!  I'll catch up with housework while I think about the next project.  There is Christmas music playing in the stores.   I am not ready for it.
