Today that happened and I spent a very pleasant couple of hours sewing.
There seem to be loads of bags appearing on craft blogs at the moment which can only be a good thing if it means that less plastic bags are being used. I got the idea for this one from Simmy who made hers with vintage William Morris fabric. Mine is not so glamorous, both the fabrics are left-overs, the green check from my younger son's bedroom curtains and the tulip fabric from our cloakroom curtains. Feeling very pleased with myself for creating a bag at no cost, I showed the family - the teenage verdict, "it looks just like a cushion, you're not going to use it outside the house are you?" - don't you find, children always bring you straight back down to earth!
