This is a shopping type bag I made for my Cousin. She bought a small piece of fabric at a Garage sale for $1 and left it with me almost 18months ago to think of a way to use it. The piece was about 27inches by 12.5 but not cut straight. I was making placemats and thought of the fabric but decided it would be a waste to use it for that.

So this is what I came up with plain black and black and white paw print from my stash and the Dog fabric was her bargain buy.
I decided it would be a good opportunity to get some more practice on my Treadle machine. So I made the whole thing on it even put a pocket inside with a zip closure.
It is in the post at the moment on it's way to her as we can't visit each other at the moment.

I love it. I love it when a certain piece of fabric finally tells you what to make out of it!

Beautiful! I know she is going to love this bag. I agree with graceandham, it does look like a designer bag. You are making me want to get out my treadle machine and get to know how to use it. I'd love to see a post from you on your experiences using it.

When I first got the machine I made a strip quilt which I posted. This is the second project I have made.
A Cutie sent me some extra machine feet she had so I can do more with it.

Really I am the lucky one she buys a lot of sewing related things and sends to me for my use.

Looks designer with these two different fabrics and really neat bag. Hurrah for bargains and cousins who sew.

I am hoping she will like it as they have just gone into a 6 day lockdown.
