I spent Saturday at my local embroiderers guild (and most of yesterday) putting this bag together. Quite a change for me to cut out something like this from scratch. I found it really challenging trying to cut out the pieces accurately just using a cutting mat, rotary cutter and ruler. Anyway, the result's good and I've got a really useful bag. Anyone who's interested the pattern can be bought here. The colours are slightly too bright and it's really a more mellow, autumnal colour than this.
