Well here is my finished bag.
I am rather pleased with it.
It has been very difficult to photograph, however. The colour is much better in real life.
There are a couple of things I would do differently another time.
For one, I should have left more room to cut off the batting round the seams. They would have been less bulky then, especially at the top.
I even have some more ideas. Now will I get round to another bag before the end of the month? We will see.
