I am desperate for a project......  Unfortunately we are a bit snowed in so no fabric shopping for me.
Instead I decided to make a hand bag, this was from a pattern in January's Patchwork and Quilting UK.  I had some lovely fat quarters in my stash so decided these would make a gorgeous bag to take around shows.
It was great fun to sew despite a few pattern errors in the mag!

These are pictures of a hand bag I made after the Festival of Quilts from a pattern I bought there - using of course my favourite Japanese patterns.

And finally, another pin cushion using up some scraps from my bag.
