This great bag gave me ideas and inspiration!
I needed a weekend bag for trips away to my bf's etc to carry the essentials for a few days away. All the bags I have, or have made were too small for this purpose, and plastic carrier bags look pretty awful.
I saw this great bag, and started to attack my fabric stash. The outer fabric is a vintage 80's Laura Ashley quilted cotton, called Nutmeg, & the patchwork strip panel is mainly Cath Kidston cottons with calico & gingham, that I quilted with calico & wadding , so it was the same thickness as the outer fabric.
Like csi princess's version, I added ties to the sides, and to make my bag more roomy, I added a gusset of about 6-7 cm all round with a zip in the top.Also not to forget a pocket on the inside , so I do't have to search at the bottom of the bag for small items.
I did break a few needles in the process..... but hey!!!! It's all worth it in the end!
Hope you like it! Thank you csi princess for inspiration!!!
