In between making cute Christmas cards I felt the urge to have a rest and make a patchwork and quilted Christmas themed shopping bag, I really do need to pull in my reigns, its no wonder I make such a great pile of ”stuff” all over my table, there are just too many ideas flying around my head all the time.

Anyway a couple of days saw this handmade bag as a result (see below) – which is now on my Etsy shop.  http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/carenscanvasandcraft

Its perfect for those Christmas shopping trips, large enough to get plenty inside, with a multi-pocket in there too, its an item that can be used year after year.  A complete one off, not available any where else it could be the perfect solution for a unique gift or a little self indulgence. Also, a great feature of a quilted shopping bag, is, that it keeps your legs warm whilst travelling if you have it on your lap!

….then I went back to making my cards!
