Make a Camden Bag over 2 sessions
These capacious, substantial and stylish bags are hugely popular, and offer the opportunity to try a new technique. Use 21/2 inch strips from your stash, or choose a succession of fabrics to get just the look you want. Half a jelly roll will do the job nicely. Add some oversize statement buttons for a final flourish, and you are ready to go!
