The inside lining, the handles and the middle strip in between the patchwork is a batik fabric in a nice spring green that I thought complimented the other fabrics well.
It went together pretty quick, but I had the pieces all cut out in advance. I thought about making a throw quilt out of them, but lost interest in that adventure. I like making small quick things better and I will use this bag. I have it on display in my bedroom since it is so colorful and there's very little color outside right now. Maybe I should buy a fresh flower bouquet at the store this weekend. Hope you have a good day!
