As you can tell, I made a mistake with cutting out the pattern! I cut it out so all the dogs were upside down. I won't be doing that again, I shall always double check everything first!!
Unfortunately I hadn't got enough of the scottie dog material left over to cut out another two front bag pieces, so I made a patch work piece instead.
The New Design
Once I made sure all the pieces were cut out correctly (and double checked) I decided to add a pocket in the lining fabric which wasn't in the pattern.

I decided to use webbing for the handles but needed to order some. Unfortunately while I was waiting for it to be delivered I came down with flu and for the last week been out of action. As soon as I feel well enough to sit at my desk with my sewing machine I shall be finishing off this little project!
