I have taken a while to post about this one......I made this bag a week ago....well, it is school holidays.
My little Miss 5 is now 6 and I have been wanting to make her a little bag for a while. Thought I would look through some scraps (most have been donated over time by lovely quilting friends). I started playing around with 2.5" squares and a 9 patch seemed to be the right size with the borders......together with some ric rac I had in my box to complete it.
I have made the handles this way a few times.....so easy when you follow Bloom's tutorial here (thank you!)
I put the bag together on the day of her birthday (nothing like last minute!) and it was excitedly received with a big smile....so precious.
