Well finally this Mondo bag is finished. I made a couple of extra things to go with the bag. Wow...it is a HUGE bag, would be really great for the beach or as an overnight bag...even a diaper bag. I have lots of pictures of the making of this bag...it was a lot of fun, even with the Shinges I've had to deal with for 6 weeks now!
Here is the finished bag...
These are the extras.....a removable cardboard bottom, covered with batting and fabric...11"x11". Also 2 small selvedge bags...a coin/credit card size and a slightly larger bag for....whatever!
It all started with something like this...
I'm really pretty neat saving selvedges...I fold them and put them in place in this basket. I have hardly made a dent in these selvedges after making the Mondo bag though!
NOTE: You may have noticed a discrepancy in my spelling of SELVEDGES, that's the way I have always spelled the word...but the Instagram group is
#selvegealong...so I go with the flow!!!
The above picture is after making an untold number of 2 1/2" squares...separately, I know I could have done it another way...but I didn't. Anyhow I got the pieces I needed in place...but couldn't figure out how to sew it together. I went online to a group on Facebook..Just US Quilters...and got tons of info...including how to sew it together....
At this point I realized how exceptionally large this bag is! What a great bag to take to workshops....or conferences.
I made 2 large separated pockets and 2 smaller pockets in the bag....plus decided to make 2 bags to hold the smaller stuff .
Once again, here is the Mondo bag in all it'S glory!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
