Finally some sewing

It has been a long time since I have been in the sewing room. I have made this bag a couple of times but for other people. I bought this fabric last year when we went to Ballan and Mill Rose Cottage - Cafe | Quilting | Retreat - Ballan, Vic it is a lovely quilt shop well worth a visit.
The pattern is from Lisa Lams book "The Bag Making Bible"

And what else would you have inside but green dog fabric.
I also have to thank my friend Amanda from Sea Breeze Quilts I could not find my copy of the book I had the pattern cut out ........ but the book is either somewhere in my very messy tidy sewing room or I have lent it to someone. Amanda sent me the instructions I was going to wing it but as I haven't sewn for such a long time I thought I had better not.
Have a look at Amanda's blog she is doing a "Sample Quilt" quilt along she is an amazing teachers so if you want to jump on board I think they are on to the second block so it's not too late to catch up.
