I was supposed to finish this bag for my February project in the Stitch-a-long. I am a little late. I've called it my French General bag but its not entirely authentic. The big panel at the back and lining isn't French General - I didn't have enough
Once I got started I found this bag very easy to make. The instruction were clear and not convoluted. I was worried at the lack of photographs of each stage in the pattern but I certainly managed without.
This bag is from the Red Home book by Natalie Bird
Here is my live-in model - Lil.
Happy Stitching all
