Free Stone Shoulder Bag

Look here for the tutorial for this fun, summer bag.  It is a good project for someone new to sewing or a unique gift.   It is light weight and has a strap long enough so the bag fits easily on your shoulder.   When traveling, it can be rolled up, packed away and pulled out when needed.

I got the idea from a bag available at the Gap.  It has one fabric on the outside, and a contrasting fabric on the inside.

It folds up easy since there is no reinforcement in the bottom.  I was able to use a lot of my scraps.

If you follow my tutorial, it will be a reversible bag.

Wondering where the name came from?  The same day I was making this bag, I was prepared with all the ingredients and equipment to can 50 quarts of peaches.  As I started the process, I soon realized that I did not have the "freestone" peaches, which are the kind that easily slip away from the pit.  Therefore, I had to can my peaches whole.  BAD NEWS!
