Belinda Bag

It has taken me a few days to complete these, but now that I have I thought I would share them with you.  The pattern is the Belinda Bag, designed by Helen Coverley who is a regular tutor at Tudor Rose Patchwork where I attend courses.  It is a lovely bag to make, and, I think, ideal for denim recycling.  An added bonus in this case is that I lined them with Kenyan fabric.  Whenever Debbie goes to Utange I ask her to buy me some fabric.  This, I believe, curtain or furnishing fabric and seems to be linen.  It is lovely to sew with and a great weight for larger bags.  It is also incredibly cheap!  Can't wait till Debbie returns with further supplies for me in a few weeks.
Anyway, here are my three new Belinda bags:

I'll be offering these for sale next weekend at the Green House, Letchworth if you are anywhere near!
