Patchwork Backpack.

I joined a patchwork class with my Mum. Wasn't sure if I would like it but as the first thing was a bag - and I love bags - off I went.

This is the result.
I love it and really enjoyed making it too. It was easier than I realised. I always thought patchwork was tiny shapes all sewn together by hand and therefore I wouldn't be able to manage it. But no! This bag was all machine sewing - yey!!

Hmm, have joined up to make a table centre piece in the shape of a star for my Christmas table. I am assured there is very little hand sewing involved. Actually looking forward to that too.
I will show you the results but even though I am starting it in September I am sure it will be December before you will see it.
