The little rag bag is finished except for a button. The one I put aside to use is too small so next time I go out, which will be tomorrow, I'll get one.
I left off yesterday having sewn the straps etc together.
The next task was to turn them through the right way. I HATE that job.
A little bit of almost midnight oil plus a glass of, helped get the job done.
That was as far as I got last night. This morning was a 'fit a new bathroom sink tap' morning. Hubby got the job done quite quickly but obviously he needed my help!! Glad the water is back on plus the heating.
Once everything was cleaned up and tidy once more, I set to finishing the bag. First off, I plaited the straps.
Then the awkward bit of sewing them on and covering the ends with the little material patches.
All in all, it's not looking too bad so it will do for me. 

If you want to have a go at one for yourself, I followed the instructions in a little book called ' purses bags and more by Pearl Louise Krush, www.thimblecottage.com
