Another UFO bites the dust!



















Barrel Bag - started earlier this year.....

Would you believe this bag only needed a button? Well almost only needed a button. The pattern called for a button and a thread loop but I decided that idea wasn't really practical considering the size button I had chosen.

So a little unpicking of the binding was required in order for me to slip in a fabric loop.

Oh and of course this bag once again used fabric from my stash, although I did need to purchase some Shapewell to stabilize the sides and handle.

This bag is beautiful!
I notice some of your other readers are asking about the pattern and I would love to know also. I'm a fan of English paper piecing and that bag would be perfect as a small project.
