For Christmas I was given a lovely Jelly Roll and matching Charm Squares. The Jelly Roll is currently partially made up into a quilt (more on that some other time) but I couldn't decide what to do with the Charm Squares until I was browsing Amazon one day and came across a pattern for a bag. Of course this meant buying the book the pattern was contained in but you can never have too many books! Love... Quilting: 18 Simple Step-by-step Projects to Sew by

On Monday I set to work making my bag. I found some cotton ticking in my box of random fabrics and had just enough for the project. Little did I know at the time that I was sickening with 'flu. I thought it was just an inconvenient sniffle but as it turned out it knocked me for six and I remained in bed all day Tuesday and Wednesday and half of Thursday too. When I finally felt able to resurface I continued with the bag-making and finished it off today. I'm really rather pleased with it although it will be interesting to see if it can actually hold any weight!
