Southend On Sea,...
I wanted a small bag so made this one from some oil cloth a friend gave me. I made the pattern for the bag and lined it with heavy cotton, it has 2 inside pockets and 1 front pocket. I haven’t worked with oil cloth before and don’t have a teflon foot yet, so I used tissue paper to stop it sticking, I still need to work out the correct tension on the machine, but the bag worked out well and if it rains it won’t get wet.
