So instead of the inside interfacing, I used insulated batting and quilted it with ripstop nylon. I also eliminated the inside zipper and added a pocket on the outside.
Another modification that I was forced to make was the handles. My local Hobby Lobby did not have cording. NONE! ZERO!!! How do you run out of cording?!?!?! AHHH!!
|And how cute is that rhinestone zipper? So sparkly and adorable!|
So I had to improvise and use prepackaged piping for the bag and cotton webbing (with added scrap fabric accent) for the handles.
And now I have an adorable lunchbag! Overall, I highly recommend this pattern.
Funny Story: the day after finishing the bag, I walked in my local Home Depot and what did I see at the very front? Cording! Lots and lots of rope and cording of all sizes and materials. I might have mumbled some bad words under my breath. lol.
