I have always wanted to make one of these, there seems to several different methods - so here is the first attempt, will have to give it another go with some different fabric.

Same bags different fabric

The top fabric, is the one I bought from Cambridge, thought I would take a snap while the sun is shining.

I have left some of these on Wollaston Home & Crafts it is a cute little shop in a Courtyard.  You can pop next door and get some DocMartins as the factory shop is there.

Also in the Courtyard is a butchers and a tearoom, the Rushden Lakes is not far from there either,

Too much fabric and my start at patchwork

So as I have far too much fabric I thought I would have a my first go at very simple patchwork, it now needs pressing and making into a blanket, with very simple quilting....which I will do very soon!

My fabric collection seems to grow...who can resist some new fabric!

So this is all my 100% cotton so very pretty.

And this is all the other fabric...I have recently tidied it all up, so that it inspires me to get making!

This is my first go at patchwork, it now needs pressing and making into a blanket, which I will do very soon!
