Are You a Cat Person or Dog Person?

I think I like both! 

I retrieved these bits of fabric from my 'that'll be useful someday' mountain. I found these panels at a fleamarket in Brussels about 12 years ago; I think they cost the equivalent of £1 (it was pre-Euro!) I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but just loved the childlike psychedelic prints. I've no idea what era they're from; they could be anything from 1960's to 1980's, judging by the look and feel.

At the same time, we've been slowly re-decorating and de-cluttering the flat, which turned up some old bag handles I'd found in a charity shop. Hey presto! A cat and dog bag!

I cut round the 2 animals, then used the scraps of green to add a panel at the sides and bottom. Then I lined it with some red polyester lining scraps:

Perfect for any ongoing knitting projects, or the days shopping.
