In Progress

I've been enjoying my friend Izzy's WIP Wednesday posts each week, so I've decided to join in the fun too!  

She's been posting about her Works In Progress and linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced to show off what she's been working on.

A new bag is what's in progress for me this week.

It's the Four Square Bag by Sweetwater.  I just love their stuff.  Can't get enough of it. 

Fabric with text on it is something I'm interested in right now and they have lots of it.

Here's my progress on the bag so far.  

I'm thinking about trying to add a zipper to it, but I'm going back and forth about it.

It would keep my stuff from just falling out, or getting dumped out when it gets hit by a soccer ball or something, but I do like the pattern the way it is.

I've never tried to modify a bag before so I'm being a chicken about it.  Should I or shouldn't I?

Any thoughts or ideas?

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!

Your bag is going to look amazing Michele! I love the fabric you chose. I'm a chicken just like you... I'm scared to death of messing things up if I don't follow the instructions to the letter! :-)

The fabrics are gorgeous. I am sure it will be wonderful with the alterations.

Do it! Since you are thinking about it, if you don't, you'll probably wish you had. Love that fabric!

Be brave... your bag is adorable and I'm sure it will be even better with the change-ups!

I love Sweetwater, too, Michele! I say go for the zipper - you'll be glad you did!
