Thanks to barbaric who sent me this tartan mesh back in November. I’ve finally had a chance to make the shopping bag out of it. It’s stilll stinking hot down-under, so I’m glad I got to make it. I’ve been flat out with other things during late Jan/Feb, so this was a bit of easy sewing. Love Chris

PS. Mums dog had a haircut and nails trimmed yesterday!!

Thanks so much Lidia, it's such a useful colour too as it doesn't show the dirt. Love Chris

Ha, ha Chris. You should never post a picture of a cute animal when showing a project you have accomplished. Cuteness will always win. Fun aside. I love your bag as well

Thanks Miss Lily is a little sweetie, so full of life, just a pity she isn't trained. I live in hope that Mum will keep trying with her. Love Chris

This is a beautiful bag. And the fabric is a perfect match to the mesh. Use with pride. You deserve every compliment coming your way. Miss Lily is quite pleased with her spa day, I see.

What a smart looking bag!!! The tartan plaid is so perfect! I don't think I have ever seen this type of material! Nice stitching!!! So, what is your Mum's dog's name? Hugs, Laura

Love the bag Chris! The solid is a perfect match to the plaid, and you did a swell job with sewing. Where does one find this mesh? Do fabric shops have it or a garden center?
Good luck to ' Mum' with her new dog.😀

I’m sure Barb found it in a local shop up in Queensland. If she sees your question I hope she will let us know. Love Chris

I didn't know there was designed mesh. This looks great; I'm going to have to explore. Nice bag.

I'm with you Sandy, I'd never seen this type of mesh before. I've only ever used the black type. Love Chris

Hi Antje, stinking hot is 36C - 42C (93F-108F) here at the moment. Whilst the USA and Europe are having one of their worst winters, Australia has had one of the hottest summers I can recall. I'm over it and can't wait for some cooler weather. Everyone is complaining about it. Thanks for commenting on the bag. Love Chris

Puuh that is hot, but I can remember 43C when we had been posted to Aden (Arabia). The first 2 weeks I could not eat only drink but then got "used" to it.
Poor you - love Antje

I've lived in Newcastle for 34 years and still can't get used to it!!!!! Love Chris

Hi Marian, thanks for commenting on the bag. It took me a while to get a fabric to go with it, so I'm glad it's completed. And yes to Miss Lily (the dog), she's running around like a mad hatter. Mid you she's a nutter all the time! She is still only a puppy and not trained, so she doesn't come when she's called or sit unless you bark it at her. She's too interested in just chasing balls! I told Mum to get her to Puppy school, but she wouldn't do it - she didn't want to pay the fee! It's a pity because she definitely needs training. Love Chris
