Love, love, love this bag.
Take one Bali Pop, lots of thread, a strong sewing machine needle and 50m of cotton cord, throw in a couple of days, mix it all up and then you get an amazing bag.
Not a quick bag to make, but really quite simple in construction. I found the pattern, designed by Aunties Two, in Australian Homespun, No 93 (Vol 12.2). Using a method called 'clothesline technique', the strips from a Bali Pop (batik jelly roll) are wrapped around a cord and then butted together to make a whole new piece of very sturdy fabric.
It's a big bag. In fact large enough to be a very useful bag for work because it will hold all essentials including lunch - most important - and laptop with some pockets inside for the little things.
I am really pleased how this bag has turned out. I will certainly be making it again, especially as I now know where to purchase the cord!
