How’s that for a mouthful title?
I was partnered with @LadybugsAndBees in the Go Bananas swap and Go Bananas I did! And, if I’ve ever sewn anything for you, there’s a good chance you’ll recognize a fabric in this bag!
She’s been wanting a project bag with handles with velcro so she can attach them to her door handle while riding passenger in the car.
She’s asked for this before, but until now I could never envision how to do the handles.
Then, I had an epiphany! I know she likes scrappy, and a year or two ago I started what was going to be a super scrappy quilt with tiny pieces. It ended up becoming an UFO, so I decided the colors were perfect and I abandoned the quilt and transformed it into a bag. This required me to add a few more rows, but hey!
As you can see, the handles are velcroed to the sides so she can have ton of options of attaching through her door handle. And, I sent extra velcro in case she needs to adjust more.
I used my normal tote bag pattern, but I needed more! She crochets, so I was going to add something for her hooks inside, but decided to add a zip pocket to the outside. The front fabric she sent me in a previous swap, and inside hides cute deer!
I made her patchwork orange reds for the inside liner and added a patchwork yarn feed in case she wants to use it! This was leftover from outside scrappiness!
I’ve been wanting to play with my clear vinyl again, so I added a pocket! I was thinking for patterns or paper, but I think she’s gonna put a water bottle.

It was weird making a bag without attached handles!
