Aussie bag swap

Last week I mailed off a swap package for the #aussiebagswap2015 and because my partner was in Australia this time, it didn't take long to get to her.
I made a Noodlehead 241 tote bag using some Cotton & Steel prints - the front is a patchwork piece...
 And the back is the butterflies print from the Moonlit range. 
The strap features the canvas arrows print with some black denim on the inside.
I lined the bag in an Alison Glass streamers print as she was another one of my partners favourite designers and they also shared the same first name:).
. I made a little matching pouch from some of the scraps and some metallic denim.

This was on my FAL Q1 list for this year so I will also be linking up with Adrianne @ On The Windy Side.

  6. I just bought this pattern and some great canvas I want to mix with my quilting cottons. Your beautiful bag has given me the inspiration to start creating one for a gift. Thanks for sharing.
