The Handy Sandy is exactly what the name implies. Its sheer size means that you can fill it with as much as you can carry. Either lots of little things or those ever-cumbersome larger items, like when you need to carry that quilt to sewing class, towel & mat to yoga class or your pajamas & pillow to an overnight retreat. The combination of the 2 ½” strips sewn together for the main body of the bag with the applique over the top to set it off. This allows you to play with colour to achieve a really stunning look. The foam inner enhances the echo quilting around the flowers. The more you quilt the better it looks. The foam also holds the bags shape around the base. The bag is lined with two pockets on each end & two large pockets on each side. Optional snaps are inserted to close the two large pockets as well as across the top of the bag.
