The frilly bag of doom is finally finished.

Gosh how I hated making this bag, so much so that is has taken over a year to do. I kept doing a bit and then shoving it in a cupboard.

But this weeks seemed to be the week of finishing off stuff, so I dragged it back out. I got most of it done and then simply hated it so much i unpicked pretty much all of the bag and stitched it back up . It is a very fiddly pattern to follow.

The pattern is 'Serged Satchel' by Indygo Junction.

The fabric I used is 'Wheels' by Riley Blake Designs for My Minds Eye

Here it is in all its frilly glory.
