The chart is repeated vertically on each side of the bag.

2. Using motifs fabric-like:
Use a portion of the pattern, placed fabric-like (don't worry about cutting off motifs on the sides), to cross stitch an apron pocket, pot holders, or a border on a tea towel. These will all make cool ideas for hand-made gifts with a cool summer touch.
