Anyone for tea?

This is one of a newish style of bag.  The starting point was a bag I saw online, which was made from squares appliqued with hearts.  The first one I made similarly had hearts, but I have branched out since then.
I have to say the applique is time consuming, even with the embroidery machine, and hence these bags are more expensive than others.  However, they are very popular and very satisfying to make.  I have been haunting Hobbycraft for the applique fabric; their packs of six toning fabrics are ideal for the purpose, particularly when they are half price!
The bags are made from six 6" squares, each with an applique design centred in it.
