I have had this fabric for ages, an impulse buy on ebay, so after making Noodlehead's 241 bag for my sis I thought it would be good to use the fabric for another. I only had enough for the front and side pockets so I used some red for the back and a creamy pillow case was the right colour for the lining :) Some of the off cuts weree big enough for 2 inside pockets so not very much was left over, which I like :)
I was thrilled to bits with this Oriental fabric I got, alsso an ebay buy lol. It looks amazing with the red but again I only had enough fabric for the front and side pockets but it's ok as the bag can be reversed so pattern one side, plain the other.
The linning fabric is some I had left from another bag project and again I used the scraps to make inside slip pockets.
Side pockets :)I gave in and brought some Hello Kitty fabric, I wasn't going to as I thought it would have been old hat by now but no, my daughter said the kids would have my arms off for bags made from it lol.
I made this one for a friends little grandaughter. I also made a bag with the Mable Atwell fabric Ive had for ages. These bags are 10'' x 11'' so are a lovely size for toddlers and fasten with velcro they won't loose anything put in it :) While I was on a roll I thought it was about time I used the pre-cut squares I brought when I first started to sew and put them together.
I made a cushion cover but ran out of stuffing so if anyone can help, where can I buy more from that won't cost the earth. I usually buy cheap cushions from Wilko's but Ive also been asked to make a load of xmas tree's and they usually take a pillow and a half to stuff so don't fancy lugging 20 odd home from Wilco's lol. The other squares will prob end up and center panels for quilts when I get some plain fabric :)
