Heidi's piano bag

Heidi requested a piano tote bag for Christmas.  I managed to complete it 2 weeks after Christmas and now I'm blogging about it 4 months later---how is that for slow?

This project was great for utilizing all the fabric scraps I can't bear to throw away.   Upon opening her present, Heidi promptly named all the houses, "that's Grandma Bishop's house, that's Grandma Clayton's house, that's our house......"  Heidi's so fun to give presents to.  :-)

So, originally I planned to have the trees in amongst the houses to create a neighborhood scene but I realized that would have made a HUGE bag.  I put them on the back instead.

I love designing the interior of a bag too.
