Patchwork is always so eye catching and it is such a great way to use up bits and pieces of left over fabrics. If you are a bit put off by the Advanced rating remember that you do not have to make the patchwork. You could always use a single piece of fabric instead of all the squares. The tutorial is very good and I had no trouble at all making it. This was my first attempt at patchwork so I am really proud of myself!

This bag proves that the prettiest projects are patchworked - all the different colors and patterns combine into a lovely end result!
