She really enjoyed The Great British Sewing Bee on TV and wants to make a skater skirt so I said she could come here for a morning and I would make it with her. To go with this little visit I have made her a sewing bag with some goodies inside.
A patchwork book for girls, some dressmaking scissors, needles and other little things in the pockets inside.
I made a little zip fob from my sewing machine cover leftovers and that piece of gingham belt loop I found in my basket.
Why was I saving that?
The geometric print is a stiff canvas and the rest is just fat quarters and dressmaking bits that I had left from other projects. The spotty and the large print on the outside are Amy Butler pieces I had in a Hobbycraft sale last year which I made a collage skirt with.
The pattern is from a book called Sew Serendipity bags by Kay Whitt and I really like it. It has printed patterns in the back, the instructions are detailed and the bags are professional. If you want to move on from the tote bag this is a great book that becomes quite advanced so it will grow with you. This is the cover bag without ruffles because I liked the shape.
Big Sis got the bag bug too while sitting at my feet making a lego friends holder.
So, if you could just pick up the rest of that lego and pop it in the bag that would be great... there is only childbirth more painful than stepping on lego!
