Envelope bag class

Had the most fun making this envelope bag today at Gone Sewin'. I used Alexander Henry fabric from my stash. The best thing about the bag is that in addition to it being roomy, it has a big envelope type pocket on each side as you can see from the lower picture where I flipped it up.

It starts out as a 38" square and is folded and manipulated into this wonderful bag. I can't wait to use it although it doesn't go with any of my winter coats which were brought out of storage this morning. It may have to wait until spring. I think I'll make one in darker colors for the winter.
