This bag was sewn last summer. Purchased the bag panel from a seller on eBay, it was a nice print on heavy canvas. DH gave it to his boss (COL H) just before she transfered to DC. (We also slipped a book of AZ photos inside). COL H emailed later that she used the bag on her trip and still uses it. Makes me happy to know it was/is actually used. I have another panel of the same desert print, will 'probly use as another gift to someone leaving AZ. It is so warm here (mid 60's), been trying to spend time out in sunshine.
