I'm not much of a sewer. I love making quilts, but I didn't not begin as a sewer. Clothing patterns may as well be Greek. That being said, I picked this pattern up from Green Fairy Quilts a while back so when my older daughter needed a "gym strip" bag for school, I used this pattern as my starting point and modified it for use with denim and to the size needed. I'm very pleased with it and more to the point, so is my daughter!
