You can't beat a pretty shopper made from oilcloth. And polka dots. In lime green. Well, at least that's what I think anyway!
I just love the colour of this shopper!
When I make something I always like to think through what particular features I would like to see in a bag. So I added an internal pocket to keep keys and phone in. I've found that there's nothing worse than having to ferret about in the bottom of my bag trying to unearth them.
Pinning oilcloth isn't a good idea as it leaves holes in the fabric. You can get special clips to hold the seams in place. But I prefer to use garden pegs!
