Seeing Double

I have to show you what happens when a friend tells me how much she likes something I've made. I return to my fabric stash and see if I have enough of the same materials to make her a gift.
This latest bag is a sister to the one I made that Andrea won in my giveaway a little while back.

I had just enough of the vintage tablecloth to make this second bag, but not enough of the stripe fabric to use as the lining this time around. Fortunately, my friend likes corduroy, because that's what I lined her new bag with instead of the stripes. Other changes from the original bag are the direction of the stripes and the interior bag pocket. I prefer the zippered pocket on this bag to the patch pocket I had on the first bag.
Here's the first bag:
and this is the book where you can find the pattern:

  8. That's lovely - I'm so jealous that I never find vintage sheets when I go thrifting. Perhaps I need to look at other thrift stores besides my regular haunt.
