Gracie is one of my absolute favorite bags to make and use! The body of the bag goes together much like a big placemat, flat with all edges finished. Then simply fold in half, stitch generous side seams and you are done!
The notched dip at the flap closure allows enough room for my elbow as I swing Gracie onto my shoulder in one movement.
Features: fully-lined with six inside pockets and a flap closure secured by Velcro.
Note that this project is not appropriate for directional prints because the fabric wraps around the bag from front, to bottom to back.
