So for Christmas I had a jelly roll of material from Moda called 'Wing It' which I absolutely loved the colour of; recently I had some time to play about with my sewing machine and thought that I would try to make a quilted bag - this is my attempt...
I sewed together strips of the material to make a larger piece and then sandwiched some wadding between the front piece and a plain piece of calico for the inside. I then stitched it all together to make a bag, and stitched a longer piece lengthways for the handle. I wanted a bit of an accent on the front so found some red material and made a fabric flower using a tutorial from MollieMakes magazine.
I went outside to take the pictures as the sun was shining and it really brought out the colours of the bag :) it looked so lovely I took some more pictures of the views from the back of our house and just thought I'd share them :) love that winter sunshine!
