blanket bag - babyroom4

ok so this is the 4th camping themed craft that we've got for that lucky baby (lol!) it's a blanket bag to hold a couple of rolled up extra blankets for those colder nights in the nursery.
It just ties on to the cot bars in the same way as the cot bumpers and hangs nicely blocking the gap between the head and foot bumpers.
I used the same appliques and free-motion quilted the background as before (believe me, this is getting old now...i'm getting fed up with sewing these shapes!) It's hanging a little wrinkled here, because i still have to get some matching blankets to go inside.
The front panel was split after quilting and bias binding finished the open edges. See the blanket inside? Easy-peasy!
Although working out the geometry of the pattern was less easy because i didn't want any rough edges showing inside and i wanted to reinforce the base with interfacing which would be invisible....but i got there in the end!
