The other day I got a lovely surprise in the mail, I received the most gorgeous bag from Carolyn
This is the bag I was going to make for the Jan Challenge but I'm so grateful to Carolyn for this gorgeous gorgeous bag. What a lucky girl I am.
So since January is nearly over my goodness where has the time gone...and school nearly ready to go back. Yesterday I was thinking about school bags and how I hate spending money only to have the kids wreck them. So this year I'm going to try the mum made it thing to see if they will look after their bags.
I was after a Messenger style bag, and I couldn't be bothered looking on the Net for a pattern. I knew what I wanted and so lastnight I drafted a pattern, and today I made up the bag using some of my Hippy Chicks Fabric and a gorgeous Huups embroidery design. I found both of these things through Craftymamas.
I'm absolutely thrilled with the end result and I have decided that this is my MEME January challenge item.
Now I have 4 more of these bags to make for the kids for school next week. 3 for my primary school kids and my #1 son wants one too. What better compliment can you get then that, my kids want to take their mum's bag to school.
Until next time Happy sewing :)
