What materials did you use? An Australian Print with former Famous Food Brand Labels, I picked up as a skirt in a thrift shop, unpicked it to create a bag for each of my grandchildren to carry their precious toys around in. The Soft Bag is lined, features a handle and hook loop for mum. There's a pocket that goes all around the bag and I topped it off with a pretty cool, pieced base. All up, I made four and the project took me a week of evenings in my sewing room. Enjoy

What are you most proud of? My attention to detail. Double stitched seams for detail and some basic quilting.
