I also got my birthday bag all finished- this was all pieced with my dresden template used in different ways. I used Bryant Park fabric for the print and the lining as well as a coordinating gray solid. I started this bag way back in May for a birthday gift to myself and haven't had the time to finish it up until this week. I am very happy with how it turned out and know I will use it a bunch. I think it will be the perfect bag for my laptop, books and crocheting projects when I travel.

tutorial I was encouraged to try it with no marking. I will say that it wasn't a perfect method for me, as some of the seams were a bit wonky and didn't want to lie flat, but I think with more practice or bigger hexies perfection could be achieved. Luckily my sweet 3 year old niece isn't too judgmental of my sewing skills so I think it will be well received. This was a great project to try a new technique on, small and quick. I put the whole thing together in an evening. I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it when she gets it.
