I had a whole day to do some crafting, so I made some cushion covers with material I had bought just for that purpose and when I had finished two, I thought a bag might look good in the same fabric, so I had a go at that too!
It's lined with calico and I remembered this morning as I was taking it out to do some shopping, and the rain was falling, that I didn't prewash the fabric.....so who knows what will happen when it comes time to give it a wash! I made up the pattern based on an old favourite Kiki K bag I had.
The pattern for the cushions comes from this lovely blog:
and I had been meaning to give it a try for ages. It worked perfectly and I am pretty pleased with the result!
