Patchwork Bag

My 'Meens-piration' Bag!!!!
This bag is inspired by a bag one of my friends, Meena (hence the name for the bag), was carrying to a Ravelry meet. I loved the way the fabric was patched together. I had pieces of handloom fabric, or 'khadi/ khaddar'  as we call it here in India, lying around and came up with this bag. I love this material and wear it very often as it suits the hot, hot summers here.
I sewed on a row of simple running stitch where the colors met to give it some texture....
The insides of the straps were also made as a patched strip to go with the main theme.
 It measures 15" x 15" with 11" straps.
A white fabric with floral pattern served as the lining...
