Carolyn also calls this her ‘Dick Whittington’ bag and you can see why!
This simple bag folds up easily to store away in a pocket or handbag or purse; just unfold it, knot the handles together and your bag is ready to go.
Carolyn has based the bag on a typical Japanese design which she has tweaked to help you sew it quickly and easily.
You can make it as complex (with a lining and top stitching) or as simple as you like – just one layer – no separate handles to worry about either.
Taken from her Sew Jelly Roll Quilts & Gifts book (which is our Book of the Month for October 2013 so free p&p in the UK for that month)
