The bags are finished....

I managed to finish the 4 bags yesterday to try out the 4 different materials.  Some were easier to sew than others but I did manage to make a bag out of each.  The one had to have cotton tape handles cos the fabric twisted and stretched and couldn't be used for handles and I have to say I really wouldn't want a bag made from at least two of the materials....one was far too stiff.  I do get asked to do all sorts of jobs and I do wonder what the customer will think when he picks them up.

What a commission, not sure I would want to take that on! Love the little quilt and have popped over to jos blog to check out what it involves. Hope I might be able to do something too, such a good cause and you know your work will be well loved.

Oh crumbs Annie - what a job and a half! I'd have been tempted to draw big smiley faces on them - just from the pure relief of having finished making them!

Hugs, Di xx

I'm with Di but not so sure they would have been smiley faces!! I actually don't like the feel of oilcloth... so cannot imagine what sewing it would be like!!
