I'm going out tonight and needed a red bag... fast!
Popped into the local newsagents for inspiration and what should be on the shelves? Only a new magazine with a kit included to make a red bag. Fate eh? It's a funny thing.
I've altered it slightly so that it's smaller than they intended and I put in a red lining using material I already had that was spookily close to the kit fabric (fate again!) I also added a white felt rose made ages ago and voila - a new bag in an afternoon.
(The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that the lining material is also in the quilt the bag is resting on which I made several years ago - the moral of the story - don't throw any fabric away!)
