My Pear Bag

"Pear" refers to the fabric of which the bag is constructed, not the intended use of the bag.  Besides, I don't think I'll ever have enough pears to necessitate a designated pear bag.

My pear bag is used mainly for toting around Susannah's dance and gymnastics stuff - very handy and very cute!  I used the free pattern for the Diana Hobo Bag from Think Liz.  It was super easy to follow for a novice bag-maker like myself.  The only thing I did differently was add a strip of fabric at the base of the yoke.  I think it helps to break up the pears and apples flying everywhere!  

I have some of this fabric left over and I'm excited about using it to make something else just as fun and fruity!
