"Hey Mercedes" Bag

I finally had a day to spend making my "Hey Mercedes" bag from my favourite Cotton + Steel fabric.

The bottom and side panel tapers to meet the side seams.  I was a little worried about the sewing but....

It worked out fine!

Zippered inner pockets and a snap closure to keep everything safe.

The square rings for the handles were purchase through Emmaline Bags.  She is a Canadian distributor of bag hardware out of Alberta.  I found her delivery to be fast and without those cross border fees and shipping.

The pattern is from the book Windy City Bags.  I met Sara in Houston and had a hard time waiting for this book to be released.  Now that it is in my hot little hands I may have to make a few more from the book.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday!


  1. Sara was at one of my guilds last year. I couldn't take her class. Nice bag.

  2. Nice bag Linda. Got me dreaming bags again!

  3. Great looking bag and choice of fabric.

  4. It's lovely. That's a great book too
