Beautiful Clare, great you finished in time. Love to see all the nice details and a good combination of fabrics.

What a fabulous bag -- the Stitch & Slash fabric method produces a gorgeous "fabric" -- how long did it take to prep the fabric? Thanks for the very detailed review.

The Stitch and Slash is surprisingly quick. After washing and drying the fabrics, i did some test samples with the fabrics in different orders to see which i liked best. I then simply layered the fabrics, drew my design on the bottom one, stotched from the back, then turned it all over and started slashing. Great fun to see what appears.

I have made several of these, and they are loved by the recipients. They look more complicated than they are! Good job on yours
