Hiya! I spent ages planning this bag and fretting over it. I bought the sample pack of squares and spent ages faffing with layouts, but ended up getting some plain blue fabric so that I just had a patchwork panel, so it wouldn't be too busy.
I used a plain grey fabric for a lining. I guess you have to line a bag when it's patchwork, to hide all the messy seams. It took me ages to make (after weeks of planning...), but I love it, and hopefully the next one will be quicker to make!
Some of the patchwork panel didn't quite lie flat and was a bit uneven, but fortunately it doesn't seem to show now the bag is made up - phew!
