This is a gift for my sister who celebrates her birthday in October. I just managed to get it completed together with a co-ordinating purse for inside and is now ready for packing and posting to North Wales. Catherine originally requested jewel colours and although this may not fit exactly her idea of jewel colours I feel sure that with the Navy background and bold, bright print of flowers this will be acceptable. The lining is a deep Cerise Pink which I recycled from a skirt that I no longer wear. The hardware is nickel and I used my favourite twist lock closure.
Infact, I am so pleased with the bag that I shall be buying another metre of the fabric to make a bag for myself which will co-ordinate with my Cerise Pink car coat.
