This stunning bag is actually very simple to make, and can be made as large or as small as you like! Try making it up in different fabrics, denim, faux leather or even silk, which would look lovely when embroidered as an evening bag! Use a 1.4” seam allowance.

• 2 pieces of lining fabric measuring 19” x 25” 
• 2 pieces of fusible fleece measuring the same

Meet the Presenter - Alex Turchyn

Coffee break quick fire questions with... Alex Turchyn How did you get introduced to crafts?My Granddad got me in to crafts and art from as soon as I could pick up a pen and brush.

If there was one other craft you would like to try what would it be?Oooo that's a tricky one!
