I had a trawl through a few charity shops in town yesterday.  Having already picked up a couple of zips (not that I’ve done any sewing with any at all yet!); photo frames to paint and spruce up, I could have left it there.  But couldn’t resist this linen:

Pretty print fabric

Well, it said ‘linen’ on the till receipt.  It’s 50% cotton, 50% polyester, a king size duvet cover and pillow slips.  I thought it could be the perfect thing for tote bags.  The reverse side is yellow – could be ideal for the lining.

I also hope to make another peg bag out of it.

Would love to get started now, but think I’d better leave it for another day.
