This bag is made from the scraps of my Bordered Peacocks quilt (which I haven't shown yet, because it's not finished yet). Don't worry, I haven't given away any fabric I should have kept - I only need to finish the decorative hand quilting on the Bordered Peacocks - it even has the binding on already.
I gave mum the scraps and the measurements of a bag I use a lot for meetings and work, and she came up with this! I was really thrilled with it. It even has a zip to hold all my stuff in when I have to put it 'under the seat in front' on a plane.
Even after making the bag there were still more scraps, so mum made a matching purse, mug rug and pin cushion for me.
The complete set:
So I received a lovely surprise on my birthday because mum had only had the fabrics about two weeks. I didn't think the bag would have been finished yet, let alone all the extras.
