I love the bag pattern that I drew up at the quilting weekend and I use the bag all the time when I go shopping. It is a good size and holds my wallet, keys, bottle of water, sunnies, reading glasses, mobile phone and all the other bits and pieces. Best of all it is lightweight - before all the above has been added - and it is easy to find everything as it has 2 inside pockets and a smaller one on the outside.
I decided to make a couple for family and friends for Christmas gifts. The funky cat 1 was for my DIL.
The green fruit and floral was for a friend
The aqua and brown one for my SIL
And the red one was for my mother. I tried to pick fabrics that reflected their tastes and interests and they all told me they loved their personalised bags.
