Seriously, it's a cute little bag. And it can be done with 3 fat quarters. Catch a deal or have a coupon, you can make this little bag for about $3. Not too bad. Even better for me, I had a little stockpile of fat quarters and other scraps large enough to fit the bill. So I got to work and didn't even have to go to the store.
I made 4 in two days. um, yes, I do have an addictive personality.
|my first one.|
It took me a little while (and emailing with Tina) to understand the instructions on the first one but I was really happy with the finished product. I love that little pocket on the front (there's one on the back too).
|The only deviations I made from the tutorial was to top stitch the pocket AND the opening of the bag. I'm so used to doing it on my other bags, I thought they'd look a little naked un-top stitched.|

Of course, I had to make one with my beloved yellow/grey/white/black walmart fabric. (I've actually got plans to make another larger one, because the pattern is a little small for most of my bag needs but I need to go to walmart and get more fabric).
I love the blue fabric on the far right. Tena H. picked it out at Jo-ann for me to make her (and I) drawstring bags for the cheap yoga mats we'd just scored. This is the one that I carry around the most. It's a favorite.
Oh, and POOCHIE has its own flickr group. It's fun to see all the other interpretations of the bag. So far, I've only added the first one I made because I didn't take individual pictures of the other 3.
Many thanks to Tina for providing me with something fun and easy to do to quench my sewing thirst.
