Stitch sunflowers_01 out 13 times

Stitch sunflowers out twice

Put all 15 designs together just like you would for a patchwork quilt

I found an excellent cotton batting for the bag it is heavy enough to keep the bag in its original form yet soft enough to be easy and light to handle. It gives the bag a nice quality. Rachel gave me this batting to use and try out on a quilt but I tried other battings for the bag and found they were either to soft or to heavy. This batting was just right for a bag. As yet have not tried it out in a quilt. Will do so in the very near future....I hope!! :) The cotton batting is called "Warm and White" you can purchase it from

Stitch the zigzag edging to the bag before you put the bag together. The zigzag edging gives it that country look
For the handles I used ordinary cushion stuffingAs displayed in the photograph I used a pink rose cotton pattern fabric to line the bag, similar to the rose design in sunflowers_01
