A Lush little bag….

When I go shopping for some bath products, I don’t want to just have them in my main bag – they’d make everything smell! I love the look of the new Butter Bear Canvas Bag from Lush but at £9.95, I decided that I was better off making a bag of my own – then I can almost guarantee nobody will have one quite like mine!

So, using some of the Jungle Book fabric I used for the messenger bag, and also some of the same cotton for the lining, I made up a Fat Quarter Bag using Amy’s pattern. I did change the dimensions a little, to work around the fabric pattern, and I also added in a French seam on the base (otherwise the back would be upside-down!

Once I added in the gusset in the base, the bag ended up a perfect size to carry a pot of Dream Cream, one bubble bar and two Butterbears!

And the best thing about it? It didn’t cost much for the fabric, as it uses just over a fat eighth of each, and it’s completely washable just in case anything spills in it!
