    How annoying

    Isn't it annoying when you want to start a project but can't find the pattern. I have spent all evening searching for the Indigo Junction Grommet bag pattern. I know I have it ....somewhere. I don't want to order another as I know it will turn up - also hard to find in UK. So spent the evening wondering round the net - fed up! Tempted to start it anyway and see how it turns out - but having spent the afternoon reverse sewing a bit reluctant to.

    On another note has anyone made one of these bags? Did you use the soft rope for the handles - if so do you know what it was called and where you bought it? Can feel another web search coming on.

    I don't make many bags but I hate it when I find a pattern I want to do, collect all the fabrics I want to use, and then misplace the mag with the pattern in it! I am presently making a sewing studio in a 10 x 16 wooden shed I just bought. After I reclaim my small house I will get all my mags and books in order then I can put all the patterns I want to do in one place! Think I won't misplace then then? Yeah Right!!! LOL

    Made five of them and yes you can use soft rope. I used coordinating fabric.

    Here in the United States you can buy the really thick cotton cording for the handles at Joann fabrics stores. You might find it at a place that sells cording for upholstery? Hope your pattern turns up soon.

    You will find it when you finish one with out it or right after you buy another pattern. I made my handles out of matching fabric.

    Angela, just noticed you're from my side of the pond. Dunelm actually sell all kinds of soft rope/cord in different thicknesses maybe you'll find something there. I often go there and find things I wasn't expecting them to sell.
