The purple chevron lining is a nice contrast to the grey drill main fabric. I bought both of these at Spotlight, sadly my local store is out of these self patterned chevrons and the self patterned dots that were part of the same range. I don't usually put pockets in bags but I thought a pocket for a phone and wallet would be handy for a teenager.
An outside photo which is probably more true to the colour of the drill.
I also made my friend Pam a bag for her birthday. I love the Wonky Chinese Coin pattern, and made a quilt quite some time ago here. However I found it a pain to make, so many little bits of fabric all over the place and a fair bit of wastage. I saw a lovely tote in the British magazine Love Patchwork & Quilting which used it as the front of the bag and I couldn't resist making one.
I was really happy with the finished bag. I found the 'Handmade With Love' tin at one of our local coffee shops, Chickpea to include in it. The background is a linen/cotton, and the lining is an Anna Maria Horner print from her line Field Study.
I made the collage above in PicMonkey. I thought it would be hard but am so pleased it was quick and easy.
I've give both bags to their owners and they both like them. I hope they get lots of use!
