Look what I made!

The productivity yesterday paid off and I have now have  completed bag to go with the books I have bought for my cousin’s daughter Alice.

Alice's bag

This is one of the fabrics that I bought from the scraps bin at a stall from the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show for £1, solids and buttons from stash so a very bargainsome gift!

I also used my new marking tool – the one that looks like a little pastry wheel with metal teeth to mark the lines for the quilted interior. I found it very easy to use and am proud of how symmetrical the quilting looks.

I attached the strap with a large button and then used some others to decorate.

Am very pleased and hope she will like it!

Now an afternoon of bee quilt and Netflix – and watching the rain, just another Sunday in Yorkshire 🙂

Thanks for visiting.

  1. I crafted yesterday afternoon while watching a ridiculous number of episodes of House (Netflix!!!) – now I’m trying to do multivariate regression … though you’d probably enjoy that!

    • I know it is so cute and was such a bargain I couldn’t resist it. Luckily I have lots of solids in my stash to match with it!

  2. THat’s so cute! I’m sure she will love it. I loved my needle case! I hope me email got to you to thank you and let you know it and arrived safely and is at home here being used daily…well as much as one can do with a toddler anyway. Merry Christmas.
