What do I do with a day off and a bag of velvet remnants? Well this is the result, I like it, hope you do too! I lined the bag with some lovely co-ordinating print which never looked quite right for any of my quilt designs
First I sewed strips of velvet together, added batting and some calico for backing and quilted down the seams. The resulting fabric was then made into the bag and the lining added separately. I put a little zip pocket in the lining just to finish it off and added the closure with a magnetic clip. Velvet is difficult to work with as it frays like mad and my floor was covered in little bits after I had finished, but I think the result was worth it!
