This is a small bag made from linen. The linen was originally a almost new pair of work trousers. Now retired I don't need the smart sober coloured clothes I wore so I cut the trousers down into shorts which I do wear. I have used one of the legs to make a small bag for a young girl who goes to many dancing lessons a week. One of the handles is folded back to show the lining. Thanks for looking

So lovely! Linen is one of my favorite fabrics. Oh, what am I saying? I never met a fabric I didn't like.

Linen is great to sew. Now there are fabrics that I have not enjoyed sewing but manners prevents me from mentioning here as I will be rude
