I bought a pattern from a lovely lady on Etsy in order to take my sewing skills out for a spin to see what I could do. It wasn't entirely easy, there was a lot of head-scratching and wasted fabric, but I got there in the end:
I used a lovely Japanese flower printed fabric from Hobbycraft for the main part of the bag. The other fabric is cut from a fat-quarter I bought months ago from Ebay - I love this fabric, but I can't find it anywhere now! I am not even sure of the designer's name. I will have to keep searching until I find it again, then I will buy lots, it's so darn cute.
This is the back view,which was the first bit I did, just in case I mucked it up, which I did a bit, sssh don't tell anyone! But I am still so utterly chuffed with myself!
The lining is just a plain linen, and I made a total mess of it so it's for my eyes only! And who needs to know the secrets inside when I can distract them with my tweeting birdies and a juicy looking apple?
