Did you get this fabric from Spotlight? Because I bought some fabric from there and I'm pretty sure it's the same. I just thought seeing as we're both in Australia we might have bought the same fabric!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

THIS IS TOTALLY CUTE! I so want one. I have def. been giving myself some more credit too, as I just designed and sewed (without breaking a needle, imagine that!) my very first crochet hook roll! But it's for a swap, but at least I know I can make them.

Sooooo.. I will HAVE to give this a try! I love it so much.

Thanks Bouncyflea for a great tutorial!
Love the bag, so I cut out the pieces in a brown floral Cath Kidston corduroy, and as I hadn't got any plain brown corduroy for the yoke, I cut that out in a synthetic brown suede fabric. As it was thinner than the cord fabric, I interfaced it .I added the lining in cream calico, with a brown floral zipped pocket. Instead of a clasp, I added a zip up top, & slipstitched the lining to it.
Havent made the handles yet, but it looks good so far. Want to try another soon, and have enjoyed it! Cheesy
Thanks again!!
p.s. Would post a pic, but can't work out how to upload my camera software on my daughter's imac!!!

That bag is gorgeous!
I'll be making one tomorrow =]
I bought some fabric on Monday that was just calling to me, but I didn't know what I was going to do with it.
And now I know =]

I'll post pictures when I am done.

Hi Bouncyflea!
I posted a reply to your great tutorial on 5/11/08, (or 11/5/08). At that time I had made the bag, but didn't know how to post pics. Well, now I do , and here is my Cath Kidston posy version of it


I wanted to use some of the CK corduroy fabric, as it's hard wearing, and would give the bag body. I needed some plain brown cord for the yoke, but hadn't any, so I cut up a pair of old synthetic brown suede look trousers, to do this. This has worked well, after I interfaced it to make it thicker. The handles are corduroy with brown webbing for extra strength. The bag is a zipped version , with a zipped pocket inside, sewn on the lining.
Thanks again for the tute, I enjoyed making it!! Cheesy
