Carolyn shares idea of bag creating. It has a simple construction from one rectangle of fabric.
This simple bag folds up easily to store away in a pocket or handbag or purse. Then 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 with no separate handles to worry about either.
It is taken from her Sew Jelly Roll Quilts & Gifts book, which you can find on our website.
