"....and just do the nine-patch inner and outer....."

Thanks Sewing Sue - that's a good idea and I think I will try that option.

I wouldn't dream of giving advice On the Darkside (or anywhere else - well maybe in the café, but not for sewing)

I'm done.  :)

Decided to use purple and pink fabrics for the lining, and blues, turquoise and greens for the outer. There are quite a lot of pieces to cut out for this.  ><




 





I found an old piece of pre-used wadding for it, and I also found a suitable piece of pre-used cord...so I'm feeling quite pleased I haven't spent any money on it.
Wadding was a bit heavier than it probably should have been, but I quite like how boxy my bag is.

That's lovely Sandra, especially the lining fabrics.
I tried to sort out some fabrics today and just got my head in a spin so gave up.
Life's too short for ironing.

I'm not into bags at all, but the fabrics in yours @Sandra just make it sing.  <3 It's beautiful. What are you going to use it for?

Thank you for your comments.  :)

I've no idea what I'm going to use it for. It's quite roomy so I'm glad I did the 9 inch bag and not the 12 inch. If I leave it lying around for long enough I'll find a use for it.

Daughter asked me yesterday why I make such 'pointless things'... ><  She didn't say it as unkindly as that sounds.

It isn't pointless. I spend very little of my time sewing just for the fun of it. I told her I enjoy making things like this so I don't go mad.

I couldn't think of any good reason to do this but now I'm seeing everyones' finished efforts I'm liking it more and more.
I need a thread bag and some mighty fancy door stops!!! I can use up some 'less attractive' bits for the bases and the linings and pretties for the outside.  :)
Well look what I'm going to do with my scraps!  0_0
