Photo Bag

This photo bag came about because my friend asked me to make it for her. She has 6 grandchildren but the bag her daughter gave her only holds 4 photos and her grandson was wondering why his picture was not on the bag. Poor little guy was feeling a bit left out. 

I had bought this material to make some bags for our girls. I bought a bit more than what I needed you know how the guessing game goes. I love the feel of this material. It looks and feels like leather but it isn't. I don't even remember what it's called. I bought it because it looked nice and it was on sale. 
Please excuse the photo quality. My camera was being serviced when I had this done. I used my phone to take a picture of it before I gave it to my friend. I am happy with how it turned out but if there's ever a next time for this type of bag, I would make some changes to the photo pockets. 

I lined the bag with blue fabric because my friend's favorite color is blue. I also added interior pockets for her to organize her things.

Ok, how are your Christmas Through the Year projects coming along? Can't wait to see it. I will have the linky tool up at the end of the month and announce who is sponsoring too.

Great looking bag. Did you increase the length of your stitch for the outside fabric? And, what size needle?

That's a great bag!! I have my CTTY project ready to go and plan to sew on it this weekend.
