Such a lovely bag and made from a place mat! I showed this to my teenage niece, Lily, who instantly fell in love with it so we're going place mat shopping tomorrow and then I will help her to make it. A really clever idea and thank you for the free, easy to follow instructions. I suspect all Lilys friend will soon be wanting one too..I know I do!
