I have been browsing around on flickr and I have been inspired by all of these lovely bags. If you click here you can go to my flickr gallery and see all the origionals and follow the photo streams of all the clever creators.
They are made by...

I have examined all the shapes, patterns,linings,handles,edgings- I love them all- but I didn't want to copy any one of them.
I joined the hexagons using a double crochet seam on the reverse, and made a front and bag of approximately the right size and shape,
then joined some hexagons at the sides so that you can see half from each side. I found that quite hard to sort out for some reason.
I worked an edging using all the colours from the flowers, the edging carries on into the handles, which was something I wanted to incorporate.
I added a lining from a scrap I had and I lined the handles too for strength.
It is a workbag really but I like it very much, do you think I could use it as a handbag or would that be too eccentric? Would people give me strange looks in town ?
Have a lovely creative week!
