March bag for BQL

As you may remember I joined a group called British Quilt List and a monthly challenge to make a bag. Kandy Newton makes the pattern, but I cannot share it with you : you have to join to be part of the fun.

The aim of this challenge is to reduce the use of plastic bags, so we have to use our creations.

This one I made a bit smaller than the pattern, to fit the requirements on bags in planes. I will take it with me when we go to America, to carry all the papers, books and paraphernalia for a long journey.

I also added some quilting on the top of the bag, and padded the handles for extra comfort, after lengthening them.

I love it and will be very pleased to use it.
In the meantime, still knitting and I made something I can't show you yet because it is a present for somebody who visits here. Next week I will probably be able to put the photos.
At last it feels like spring is really coming, the temperatures are much nicer and I have left my coat in the house when I go to school.
