Op shop goodie...

Mum's eyes just about popped out of her sockets when I showed her this curtain in the Auckland Mission oppie in Takapuna.  And not in a good way.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!  So I searched and searched for a pattern that was simple, practical and looked good.  I found it here on Melissa's blog Tiny Happy.  She has quite a few tutorials on her blog which I'm itching to try but thought I'd start with the bag.  I made mine slightly larger than the one shown but it's not oversize.

Isn't it great?  And I still have plenty of fabric left over.
