I'll be teaching a bag making workshop in August and wanted to simplify the pattern and instructions as much as possible to make it suitable for anyone pretty new to sewing and quilting. It is very simply quilted with a walking foot in wavy lines, and lined with simple pockets on the inside. It's quite roomy at about 18" by 14" and very light. I managed to cut it all from two half metres of fabrics although I'd prefer the handles to be just a touch longer to slip over my shoulder more easily.
Still, it'll be perfect for trips to fabric shops and the shows coming up - the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham and the Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate!
