Blue bag, red bag

Gabrielle shared her pattern for a zip-top bag with the members of the UKSewing group. I made it slightly deeper, in a remnant of corduroy found at John Lewis (cost, £2.71), a recycled zip, and lining left over from the coat. What makes the difference with the bag is that it's got quilt wadding under the fabric. And a stiffener in the bottom. Turned out the corduroy was stretch cord. Because of what this does to the handles, I call this my bungie bag.

Another remnant - this one cost £5 - and a brand new zip - and voila, another bag. This one is wider, to show off the pattern.
The zips need a pull - plenty of decorative/imaginative possibilities here. And the inside needs lots of pockets --
