Aster Manor Canvas Bag

This gorgeous bag was part of my mum's belated birthday present.
I saw a similar one in a local gift with a high price tag so searched online and found some similar fabrics. I used a canvas from FatQuarterShop and it is very soft and was lovely to work with; and for the bag top and inner handles I used a pretty yellow print from the Aster Manor range. The handles are a bit wide but by the time I realised I was out of time to redo them, so I hope they go ok mum.
