Let's call it... "Cram it ALL in Thursday!"

I got so much done yesterday that I didn't have much to do today...or so I thought!  I had a bag to do today that I thought would be a snap.... NOT!  I had to take a break and make this cute little guy...
I saw him on some blog that I can't remember, but here is the tutorial from Sew Much Ado that they mystery blog that I can't remember linked me to.  ...did that make any sense?  ... I really should blog when I am awake ;D

Now back to what I was really supposed to be doing today.  I was supposed to be making the bag from the Zakka Style Sew Along.  I read the pattern earlier this week and was FREAKED out by sewing all of the little triangles so I decided to make flying geese instead.  Well the fabric I had for the main bag was SO weird that sewing and cutting it was NOT FUN!  I muscled through it and ended up with this...

It's hard to see, but there is a long divided pocket along the bottom.

I have to say that I LOVE THE LINING fabric :)  The cream fabric is some sort of coated linen.  It's WEIRD!!.  It is soft and pretty, so maybe it will be ok ;)  I used to sell bags, so I just sort of did my own thing.
I am linking this post up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict WHOOP WhOOP!!
