Since I love the prints so much, I decided to use my cut pieces for the exterior and the typewriter print for accents and lining. I'm so glad I stuck with it! I love the final result! I made just a couple of modifications. Instead of using a blanket stitch or applique for the accent, I cut the piece 1/2" bigger than suggested. Then I sewed a 1/2" line of basting stitches, clipped very close and turned it under. I was able to sew a nice clean line this way. I'm not big on a raw seam, no matter how it's finished, especially with a cotton fabric.
Park West Bag, and they also worked quite well. For the lining, I added a zippered pocket with a big pop of color. I do luvs me some color!

Next month is the Oh Spit! Diaper bag...I'm still deciding if I want to make that one or not. My diaper toting days are over (YEAH!!!!) and I don't know anyone that needs a diaper bag...but maybe i could modify it for another use? We'll see, right now I'm off to test a pattern for Sarah Markos...super excited!!!!
