at long last . . . my patchwork bag

It’s been a long time in the making, but it’s finally finished . . . my first ever patchwork bag yay.

Without further ado, here it is in photos.

Two photos of the inside (which is already covered with dog hair) to show what I did with the three extra squares.  One pocket on one side . . .

and a larger pocket on the other side. Added a popper to the middle, so the pocket doesn’t flap open.

and a zoom on the buttons I ended up using, because you can’t see the wonderful detail in my photos

    • thanks Avis, yes am rather pleased with the “cord” effect . . . it’s just stitching with one colour and then passing another thread in and out.

      • I know. I did it on my binca needle case when I was in Primary school. It was one of the stitches we had to practice. I did mine in purple and red threads, surprise, surprise! I had forgotten all about it until I saw your bag! Thanks for the reminder 😀 Avis x
