Having made my Bed Runner earlier in the year I still had quite a stash of Moda French General Rouenneries Deax fabric
I also had a pattern from Quilter's Trading Post for a dear little summery bag. It's rather sweet and measures 9" in height and 11" in width with a 3 1/2" bottom. The pattern states 3 x Fat Quarters for the outer bag, base and handles and 50 cm for the lining and frill, but I pulled scraps from my stash. The bag is lined in the same fabric as the frill, handles and base.
I deviated somewhat from the pattern instructions and stitched the front and back panels using "quilt as you go" method and to keep their shape I inserted TV cable in the bag handles. Although the bag bottom had been quilted it was still quite soft and to maintain a neat shape and create a firm base I covered a piece of cardstock with wadding, which was then glued (using PVA glue) onto the base and this was then hidden by the lining.
Another little gift??
