This bag may well have been the turning point from mission to fun. I have been admiring and avoiding this pattern for several months. Every time I looked at it, I told myself I couldn't do it. This weekend I proved to myself that I could and I did!
I used some Essex linen in natural, mixed with some Melody miller (Viewfinders and Ruby star shining panel) and Mod basic dots for the lining. I lengthened the strap, so that I could wear it across my body.

Once I had cut out all the fabric, the pattern started to make perfect sense. I am not great at visualising how things work, so the tons of pics were a godsend. This is my favourite bag of the challenge so far, but I have to make the Go anywhere bag next...
The Ruby bag will get it's own post tomorrow.
Five bags down, three to go!
