Bird Bucket Bag

I spent most of Saturday finishing off making this smart bucket bag.  I bought the pattern at Knit & Stitch in Harrogate and have been meaning to get on and make it for weeks.  The fabric was purchased from Hus & Hem in Ledbury and is actually curtain material.  I fiddled about with it to ensure I got all three birds on both sides and I still have some interesting scraps left which I will use to make something at a later date.  I have got another one half constructed but have run out of the interlining fabric so will have to wait until some more arrives.

The good news is I have now received delivery of some heat resistant fabric to enable me to finish my second Iron Carry Mat so that will be today's task, unless I get sidelined!!  Ooops forgot I am also making a wrap around cover for my new Yorkshire Travelling Journal which will start later in the year.  Such excitement ..... I will get my own YTJ back in 6 weeks time with two years worth of contributions from all those taking part.  I know it is bursting at the seams so cannot wait.
