A couple of summers ago I managed to retrieve an old deck chair from the dump which I re-covered with rather more vibrant fabric. I still liked the stripy canvas that came with it though and made a satchel style bag with it. Unfortunately, as the fabric was old to start with, it has become a little worn and I'm now loosing small items from it on a regular basis - there's only so much patching you can do.
Luckily my dear friend Emma bought me the Cath Kidston 'Sew' book for a birthday present and I've finally got around to making the bag that comes with it. It's such a great book that comes with loads of projects to do along with all the patterns and templates you might need.
Now I just need to get some new stripy fabric, adapt the pattern slightly and I'll be away. I can see a few people getting these as christmas presents this year!
