Crazy Chicken Bag

My mother-in-law, Momba, likes chickens. I found this fabric a while back at Hancock and couldn't pass it up. I had to make something for her out of it.
Her birthday was on the 6th of October, so I made her a bag. I based the bag off Simplicity pattern 9963, option D. My mom had made me a bag from this pattern years ago and I love it. I think it's the perfect size for so many things. The shot above is of the inside of the bag.

I made a fun star block for the front side rather than the 9 patch shown on the pattern. I paper-pieced it using a pattern I found in a book called 365 Quilt Blocks.

It turned out rather fun, don't you think? I'm happy with it.
