Here's my finished "Bohemian Bag" using Lila Tueller's Soiree fabrics.  (It's also a Lila Tueller bag pattern - I'm kinda a stalker, er, fan!)  This was my very first quilting project, and I think it came out beautifully!  I get comments on it daily - people assume I bought it - and that it's some exclusive new Vera Bradley design.  I must say, I'm a huge Vera fan so I found that really flattering!

For the bag's interior, I used scraps of the polka dots to make the pockets.  The interior fabrics are all covered with iron-on vinyl so it's water resistant.  I was thinking of making this bag as a diaper bag for my little sister who's expecting her first baby in August.  After carrying it, though, it's not really big enough to be a new mom's bag.  (It works for me because my boys are 4 and almost 2 so I only have to carry 1 diaper and a small clutch of wipes on most trips out.  Anything more, and I carry my Skip Hop backpack, which is the best diaper bag ever, BTW!)

And, not to toot my own horn (really, I must!)  Lila HERSELF emailed me to compliment my completed bag!!!  She also offered me some advice to my questions while I was sewing the bag.  How cool is she?!
