Car Bag

When I finished with my painting and sun dyed fabric, I designed this car bag for my sister’s birthday.  I had to add sides and a wider bottom since she wants it to hold heavy map books.  The front and back are heavily quilted to a duck canvas interfacing.  The bag is lined with a coordinating fabric and linen  cloth.  The handle is reinforced with the addition of webbing inside the sleeve.  Two brass D rings are attached to one end of handles so you can easily adjust them when bag is hung on the seat back.
