At last year's Festival of Quilts my Mum was temporarily 'inspired' to have a go at making a bag. Nearly a year later and no nearer her new creation I was handed the challenge and this is what the finished product looks like! My first time with some rather unwieldy interfacing so there are some less than perfect bits, but all-in-all a perfectly serviceable, useful and gorgeous fabric bag! Hope she likes it when I give it to her this weekend...
The pattern is Amy Butler's 'Birdie Sling' and fabric is from the wonderful Fabrics Galore on Lavender Hill, London.
We're both going to this year's Festival in August so who know's what Mum will be inspired by this time! ;)

Make do and Mend Quilt for Sarah, a set on Flickr.This was a very special quilt made for my bestfriend to celebrate a - uhum - special birthday!
Made from scraps collected and donated it comes together to make a wonderful bright and cheerful quilt to throw over a bed or chair.
A big thank you to Beccy for the wonderful photographs!
