Well I got it finished and it's very useful. Holds a lot of my stuff to take to the classes at Beamish.
I managed to find enough matching bits of fabric in the cupboard that were strong enough for the bag. To be truthful two of them were humongous skirts cotton I bought in M&S for a £1!
It has lots of pockets to hold all the bits & pieces. Took me ages to make fitting all the different sections together, quilting it & then I added some beads so I'm put off from making another one even though I need another bag. So much stuff to carry!
Have to say I would like one for the bedroom to hold all the gubbins I have lying around (my hairdryer & make up etc)
Maybe one of these days!
