A profitable half term!

I have had a creative burst this holiday, and the curtain samples have been inspiring.  As well as the three bags I posted in my last post (which were extremely quick to make) I made three of the pattern pictured here. 




This was a much more complicated proposition.  The pattern came from a magazine, and I have used three different colourways of this particular curtain sample in the design.  Sadly the two that I used in the main panel looked very similar when pieced; I wish now that I had used the blue colourway (which I used in the top and bottow stripes) as one of the main panel colourways.
It is a lot of piecing, but came out looking really effective.  I used denim for the other pieces of the bag, and lined it with fabric from an old sheet.  To the inside I added a zipped pocket on one side and a simple full length pocket on the other.  The other two of this design are in different colourways; I tried photographing them but it didn't come out so well.
