At last!! I've managed to make this patchwork bag. I've been meaning to make one for ages and kept putting it off. In the end it took just over a week to make, evening only, so not too much time spent on it. The pattern was from last month's Let's Knit magazine, which was well worth the money as there were lots of good patterns in it this time as well as the free handles.
I lined the bag with some gingham which was one of those things which I bought for those 'it may come in handy for something' moments!!
It's smaller than I imagined it to be, so I think it will be used to hold my current cross stitching project. Very pleased with the result!!
