A Summery Flowery Bag - inspired by Cath Kidston!

I bought Cath Kidston's book - "Make!" a while ago, and felt inspired enough by it to make some bags as Christmas presents. I got a job lot of cotton shopping bags from Ebay, and spent hours cutting out piles of flowers! And even longer sewing round them once I had ironed them on!

Some of them had less flowers on than this, in a diagonal stripe across the front, because I was running out of time and got fed up of cutting and sewing! But it worked quite well like that too.


  1. What a fab way of brightening up a job lot purchase!
    don't you just love ebay!
