You can also vary the pattern buy changing the order e.g.: 1 Red, 1 White Print #1, 1 Red Spot, 1 White Print #2, 1 Red, 1 Red Spot, etc.

Sew the single strips together to create double width strips as shown left.
Lightly iron the strips once finished to flatten and prepare for next stage.

As shown in the diagram left, place the finished patchwork over the quilt batting, and tack it from the centre outwards, quilting the areas other than the base.


Step 5
Sew both edges of the inner bag, and sew triangular guessets into the base.


Step 6
Fold the outer diagonally and place it over the inner bag.
Sew the edges together using tiny ladder stitches.
Hand quilt around the printed areas using small even stitches.


Step 7
Roll the material for the handles into tubes.
Sew together and then triple braid them, making two handles 40-42cm in length.

Patch together the base section of the patchwork, and finish off the quilting.
Insert the carry handles into the openings and finish off the inner bag.
