The bag is either too small (which it isn't) or the doily is too big (which I think it is).
The bag is great. I have used the principle of the knot bag pattern, but done away with the round bottom, and I am cheating with the lining too . It was very quick to put together.
I love the calico (muslin). That is a great base. I am going to work with it more. I think also the issue is that the doily is to dark (or conversely the muslin is too light!!). The poor doily was scorched, so I scorched it all over, and now it is to dark. I think if it was its original colour it would look better. I might tea stain the bag.
Anyway, the bag itself, a great little number. I am happy with the bag. I didn't do the "one handle shorter" as the knot bag pattern call for, but it will translate easily to this design to.
The doily on it concept...that still needs some work. ( I embroidered the word 'vintage' myself. I like that!)
