I spent approximately 4 hours printing and stitching the 'white' fabrics, and a further 4 hours piecing the log cabin patchwork design ready to cut out my 'white' panels. I am very proud of the resulting patchwork - it seems a shame to cut into it!
A further 6 hours were spent dying, bleaching and decoratively stitching my 'black' fabrics.
Stitching, cutting, stitching and cutting the crunchy fabric for my 'black' panels took about 4 hours. There is only enough fabric here to cut out the panels for one side of the bag, so am in the process of producing another 2 identical pieces of this, one for the other side of the bag and one for the gusset.
