Lazy Girl - Claire Bag

The Claire bag from Lazy Girl Designs finished last weekend.  It has two central pockets on the outside and small pockets all around the interior.  Not particularly difficult to make and it looks nice finished.  It's not very "sturdy" and any weight inside distorts the shape.  If I made it again I would use a much heavier weight interfacing.  It's wide open top gives no security for the contents but there is a small optional flap in the pattern which would keep it together in the middle.  It uses a different fabric combination on each side and requires 7 fat quarters, fusible fleece and interfacing.

I think it will be useful for carrying my packed lunch to work - not secure enough to carry anything of value.  Just dropping it on the floor would have things dropping out all over the place.
