The Hour Bag
 I have designed an 'enviro bag'. A great bag to take to the supermarket (or craft shop lol), big and roomy, strong handles and some templastic in the base so that way you can just wipe over if any spillages. I have called it 'The Hour Bag' as it only takes about that long to whip up - a great quick gift, or for market stalls or even classes!!
I have made 2 of these bags, one for my MIL for her B'day recently which is pictured with the pattern, the other is the 'badge' one. The main fabric are the same, just the lining different - one is blue the other is green.

Here is 'The Hour Bag' badge if you want it for your blog to link back to me:

You can download it here but PLEASE WHEN YOU PRINT IT OUT MAKE SURE IT PRINTS AT 100%

Here is a step by step tutorial:

Step 1: Cut out all pieces and tape together where indicated.

Step 2: Cut on fold - 2 for main and 2 for lining:

There is a 'dot' on the handles, what I like to do is cut a triangle so I know exactly where it is on the cut pieces:

Once they are cut out you will have 2 mains and 2 linings which will look like this:

Step 3: Place 2 main fabrics right side together and sew both side seams and along bottom edge only - LEAVE THE 'CUT OUT PIECES':

Step 4: Place side seam and base seam together, press flat and sew along RAW EDGES - this forms the base..... follow the diagram:

Step 5: Repeat for lining, but leave a 3" or 4" gap in the side seam for turning.

Step 6: With main bag right side out and lining right side in, place main inside lining. Line up side seams - pin. Sew from 'dots' on handles all the way around to the next 'dots'. Repeat for all 4 sides:

Step 7: Turn bag right side out through opening in lining side seam - make sure you pull the handles out too!! Your bag should look like this:

Step 8: For the handles, place 2 opposite main fabric handles right side together and sew along raw edge. Press. Place 2 opposite lining handles right sides together and sew along raw edge. Repeat for other side:

Step 9: Fold under the raw edges on handles 1/4" and press. TOP STITCH all around the bag and around the handles.

NOTE: If you top stitch 1/8" around edge you will not need to hand stitch the opening of the handles closed. Press:

Step 10: Hand stitch the opening closed in lining. Cut your templastic for you base at 8" x 12". Slip it inside your bag and now it is completed.

Roseanne and Bec pattern tested this for me - thankyou SO much ladies!!
I hope you enjoyed making this bag and would love it if you could email me some pics for me to share here as well!!

Table Turnover' Tutorial

OK, here it is...... My 'Table Turnover' pattern:

Here is a pic of the Table Topper/Lap Quilt and you may use it to put on your blog and link it back here if you wish:

So, you will need a Turnover pack - there are 80 triangles in each pack. They are generally 6" squares cut into triangles. And, you will need a Charm pack too - mine had 40 charms. Sew 2 triangles together on the long side - like the below pic. I made 2 the same of each block - that way when you cross-cut them they match up together (if you wish to do this, it is easiest and quickest if you separate your pack in half) you will see further down what I mean:
Now, you will need to cross-cut them from point to point like this:
As I had 2 blocks the same, I was able to put them together looking like this:
But, if you wanted a more 'scrappy' look, which will look just as beautiful, it would end up looking like this:
Then, once you are pleased with your block arrangement, sew them together, you may need to trim your 4 patch triangle block down to 5" (the same as a Charm Square):
Now you are ready to sew the rows! When sewing the triangles and squares together, make sure that they alternate. One block, one triangle, one block, one triangle etc. I made mine 8 blocks wide - but if you intend to have an odd number across, you will need to make sure that you alternate the first block.
When you have your rows together it is time to sew the rows together. I made 8 rows for mine! Make sure that the blocks alternate on the way down as well as across. If you have an even number across, you will have a 4 patch one end and a block the other so it is easy for you to sew together:
Here is mine. 8 blocks x 8 rows:

The finished size is approx 36" square - just the right size for my coffee table. I did have a few blocks left over (16 in fact!) and plan to make something with those. You could easily make yours 8 blocks x 10 rows, or 7 blocks x 11 rows etc.....

I hope you have enjoyed this pattern. I have enjoyed sharing it with you all.
