These used up some scraps of cotton fabric as well as the denim:
I first made the decorative panel by sewing the strips of denim alternating with strips of cotton and cutting them to two 2" x 10" finished pieces. I then put one of these between two of the 10 x 4" pieces of denim.
Next I attached the zip, sandwiching it between an outer piece and a lining. I then sewed round the entire bag and lining, leaving a gap at the bottom of the lining for turning (and making sure I had unzipped the zip first!) I cut a 1" square out of each corner of the bag, and boxed the corners. I then turned the bag right way in and stitched up the gap in the lining. Job done!
