The lining isn't in it yet, but here's the next one started.

I have another plain nylon to line it with. Again, I have put both pockets on the outside, rather than one outside and one inside.

The fabric used to be a tablecloth, but never used as one. I've interfaced (interllined) it with canvas. It seems to work well enough, and makes it into a sturdy bag.

Tomorrow, when I've finished it, I'll post the final product.

Thank you, Curiousfae.

I don't mind it at all. (It's currently on display at my local fabric shop. Just because.)

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Wow that was a pretty tablecloth! Shocked Most of the ones I've seen with floral prints are hideous Tongue Now you've got a gorgeous bag and no one will know its life started as a tablecloth unless you tell them Wink
