A Dog Gone Cute bag ...

Back in August I signed up to be a participant in the Dog Gone Cute Blog Hop.  My make for the Blog Hop was a great quilt for my daughter's 9th birthday, which can read all about here!  However, I made two initial practice blocks which had languished on my shelves since September.
 
So here I can now show some secret sewing that went on a couple of days before Christmas and tick off another finished project from my FAL Q4 list, which is hosted by Adrianne over at On The Windy Side.


I quilted one with cross hatching and one with echo quilting around the dog, which took a lot longer than I thought.

 
That moment when you're not quite sure you did it right!




A gusseted bottom!
 
 
And fully lined.
 
I was actually really pleased with how this little bag turned out.  I haven't ever made a lined, gusseted, zippered bag before!  The recipient, my eldest daughter, was also really pleased to receive it.
 
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
