Carpet Bag

 Have been wanting to make this bag for a few years.  Was sorting out my magazine collection again and came across the pattern ... since l had nothing on for the next couple of days thought l should give it ago.
Then came the search for suitable fabric in my stash, which l knew l had purchase also quite some time back. After re arranging my sewing room l finally found what l was looking for.

Cannot believe how similar the fabric is.

Cut out pieces ready to go last night....after a slow start to the day l managed to go to my sewing cave and start.

It is a quick project once you get started. Not the best instructions but mulled my way through.
Now all there is to do is to find the right set of handles.

 If any one knows where l should start to look for handles similar then please drop me a line.

Looking forward to having another project finished soon.

You can find the pattern for this bag in Country Favorites...Quilts, wall-hangings, cushions & accessories No. 1.
