Sleeve Bag ???

Well...I quilted a piece of the floral patchwork with the intention of starting a little girl's jacket. I cut out a sleeve, encased the edges in binding to finish it nicely and then decided it was too bulky for a little jacket...but it was too nice to just discard. Sleeve-shaped place mat? NO! I played with it...folding.... manipulating....hmmmm.....would make a cute make-up bag or something similar.
So I sewed up the side seams...took the excess fullness at the top of the underarm of the sleeve and folded and tacked it...put on a large button and made a wrap tie from some of the bias binding...voila!
I now see a larger bag out of this fabric......
