Found It!

My mojo, it's been missing for a while. I looked at the daily calender up in my sewing room the other day and it hadn't moved since 20th April!! So I updated that today and have my DD to thank for it.  She came to see me yesterday and she had a great bag with her, I quite like it, and decided on close inspection that it would be easy enough to copy. So copy I did.
The fabrics used are curtain samples, given to me ages ago. I have the same fabric in three different colour ways.

 I always knew it would make a nice bag, I just needed to find the right bag!
 I love the way the original maker had done the handle.  I had it finished in a couple of hours. :-)

I love it and I just may have to make a couple more. I have more of this chocolate fabric as well as sage green and a dusty pink, but I think I'll need to find different lining and handle fabric for them.
