Two sides to every story
I wanted to make something for a friend as a thank you, and as I know she likes my patchwork jeans bag, I decided to make something similar.
Her favourite colours are green and purple so I've incorporated those into it
After I'd appliqued on the flowers and leaves they looked a bit drab, so I used some bronze fabric paint to brighten them up
Inside are two pockets and a clip for keys
I've used the wrong side of some curtain fabric for the green patches and lining. I wanted plain green but the right side has raised stripes which gives a slubby effect on the reverse
I got this fabric and a different one from Abakhan a while ago when they were being discontinued. They were those curtain samples that are made up into curtains and were 60p each.
I've used some of the right side of the fabric to make this SatNav bag
