VANILLA SUGAR - MAY BAGS!!!

Did everyone enjoy the long weekend???  We certainly did, though we didn't do too much or is that the idea??? haha

Today I would like to show you my VANILLA SUGAR CHALLENGE DT piece.  For the month of May we are asking for you to make BAGS!!!  Can be any kind of bag at all, whatever you fancy as long as there is a bag in there somewhere.  As I have a load of handbags I decided to make a Stash/Craft Bag.  I was given a bought one by a lovely friend (you know who you are :D) and used that as a guide, sort of!

The whole thing is made of cotton.  Some of you may recognise the spotty red as it came free with a magazine recently.  I doubled up the pocket fabric to make it stronger and then lined the whole thing, adding a pocket inside.

 the inside pocket...

 with some stash in it to give you an idea of size...

Please pop over to have a look at what the other designers have made...they are pretty awsome...just follow the link above.  Thank you so much for looking today, HUGS XXX
