In another attempt to master bag making I put together a packet of silk scraps bought years ago in Canberra. The good news was that they all co-ordinated. The bad news was the pieces were so small I had to stitch them together first to get big enough pieces for a bag. This left the final bag looking a bit “patchy”. Another disadvantage was that the fraying meant I had to do some “rescues” involving satin stitched edges which were not a part of the original design but required to get it to hold together!
Anyway, it will be a colourful contribution to the WAFTA display “A Bonanza of Bags” at the Perth Quilt and Craft Show in May.
