Project Patchwork bag

The front of this patchwork bag consists of three vertical strips blanket stitched together, while the back is made up of a single panel of stocking stitch knitted with horizontal stripes of colour. The pieces are sewn together and then felted in the washing machine, making the bag beautifully soft and simple.
