Purse Palooza ~ Rockin' Guitar Bag

Sew Sweetness

It's Purse Palooza time at Sew Sweetness!  I hope you are following along and enjoying all the purse reviews as much as I am.  This is a great excuse to sew some bags for myself and gift-giving.  Here's my third bag, the Rockin' Guitar bag.
I pinned this tutorial from Bored and Crafty awhile back and finally made my own guitar bag.  I started with this guitar photo and drew a pattern based on the photo.  

I wish I had the patience to add some more details to my guitar front, but overall I am really happy with the bag.  Inside, there is a zippered pocket, patch pocket and key holder loop.  I also added a magnetic closure and adjustable strap so it can be worn cross-body or over the shoulder.  

The Bored & Crafty guitar bag has little depth, so I added a 3" strip between my front & back panels for depth.  I used home decor weight fabrics and Pellon 70 to line the outer fabric.  I used a fusible woven interfacing on the lining, so this bag stands at attention!

Abby is begging to keep this one and the neighbor girl wants one for Christmas.  Sounds like I will be making more!
