I was in a quilt shop one day and 4 fat quarters in gold tones took my fancy. Gold is not usually my fancy but these looked good together so a purchase was made! I used three of them to make a simple small tote shape bag. I was then, of course left with one fat quarter and the inevitable pile of scraps that you end with that you simply cannot throw away and which must go into the scrap stash because you are sure they will be useful for some other project!!!! As I started to put the pieces into the scrap stash I thought why not work the other way immediately so the scraps stayed out, the fat quarter that was over stayed out and a small piece of orange fabric came out of the scrap stash. With thanks to heartofmary and her patchwork bag tutorial a second bag was born almost straight away (the piece of orange is hidden in the second bag as the bottom part of the lining).
Two bags and less in the scrap stash than more - a success I felt!

Nice work!  It's amazing to see what you can do with a limited amount of materials!  Cheesy

Ah, I see you're a recession buster too, eh!  Two for the price of one.  They're wonderful - the fabrics blend beautifully.
