On my last U3A Patchwork monthly meeting back in July (the group packed up for the summer holidays) we were all given a hand out which was to make a bag out of 5 inch squares of either denim or a similar strong fabric. The finished bag is to be presented at our next meeting in October. For my bag I chosen some linen curtain material from a sample book . I used some white sheeting for the lining which was stitched in the same way as the bag. A nice way to use those odd scraps of material up don't you think ?.
