Flying the flag

Although my first attempt at using oilcloth for bag making went surprisingly well, I thought it would be quite a while before I'd be using it again...wrong!  Whilst in town last week I popped into a fabric store (I can't not go and look, can I?), and saw this great distressed Union Jack oilcloth..I just had to buy it!

At first I was just going to make some basic, unlined shoppers, but thought again. This oilcloth deserved more than that, so I decided to make this great tote - I'm almost tempted to keep it for myself, almost...

What do you think?
