I've also had these beautiful carbonised bamboo handles and super-shiny o-rings (and not o'rings as I typed at first!) that I bought from Lisa in my stash for ages, again waiting for the 'right' project as they're too nice to just use willy-nilly.
So finally, after draping and arranging and folding and unfolding for many weeks, I finally got out my scissors and cut into the fabric yesterday to make this pleated-front bag.
So the dilemma is whether or not I keep it! I did have this fabric earmarked for a bag for myself, and it's lovely and roomy for stashing lots of mum things inside (my primary requirement in a bag!). My only worry is that I'm too scruffy for it. I'm just going to admire it on the back of my bedroom door for the moment and decide at a later date!
