Oil cloth bag

Thought I'd try an oil cloth tote bag. It's tricky to work with, as you can't really use pins and it sticks to the sewing machine!! After some trial and error I discovered that a walking foot and tissue paper prevent it sticking and Sellotape comes on handy for tacking pockets etc on. I still need to add handles, but here's my progress so far.

The outer oil cloth fabric and the lining with pocket attched
