I wouldn't normally be so excited about a bag, but it's the first time I've used my sewing machine in over a year and this is this first thing I've made with it in that time!


The outer is printed cotton and the lining is a pre-quilted fabric.

I was surprised at just how much stuff I could fit in it;


I found the pattern via this blog

The sewing took me about 2.5 hours and the pattern was pretty detailed.  I felt some of the instructions were superfluous (machine basting, for example) but I just skipped those bits.

There are a few more photos in my gallery.  Thanks for looking!

Thanks all.  The fabric was an impulse buy and I'm glad I've been able to use some more of it (I made an eyemask with a little)!
