This fabric line is just stunning. I love love love how bright and pretty it is. The fig print is beautifully done and goes so well with the all the floral prints.
If you follow me (or if you don't), I use to make a ton of bags pre-twinning days. This was and still is my favorite thing to sew if time allows me. I based this bag on a scaled down version of the diaper bag I made a couple of years ago using Strawberry Biscuit fabric.
Here's what I made:

|Outer pocket details|
|Zipper and side details|
|Inside of bag|
|Back of bag|
I used pellon bag interfacing and quilted all the pieces. I have had a huge roll of this for awhile and I love working with this for bag. It gives it a nice shape and make the bag sturdy.
I made the handles myself. I was contemplating using cotton webbing, but my supply is somewhere buried in a box in my garage as I'm in the process of moving. I used the same pellon bag interfacing.
I cut a 2 inch long strip of interfacing and a 2 1/2 wide piece of fabric. I wrapped it around the interfacing and basted the sides.
Then if folded the two sides into the middle and blind stitched it together.
