Oh yes, my sewing frenzy continues and my man is cooking. Today something electrical in our oven burned so now we will probably have to buy a new stove. Woohoo. (I mean, what a shame. So expensive!)
I made these bags for two little girls I know. The oldest, aged six, knew exactly how she liked hers and even draw a picture of it. Brown, with purple handles and a gold pocket, and then she drew something curly that I have interpreted as lace. The younger, aged four, said that she wanted a red bag. A little more room for improvisations there...
The brown bag is made of velvet, brown and deep purple, and it is lined with a flowery cotton fabric in brown. I made a gold pocket and after a little pondering also decided to add the small beads because the bag looked so "grown up", not as something for a little girl. The red one is made of simple cotton fabric, with a "pouch" pocket and handles in a red fabric I hade left after the quilt. It is lined in bright yellow and I found a lovely "flower" ribbon to decorate it even more. Oh, what a lousy picture this is but the light was hopeless!
I had so much fun making these and hope that their new owners will like them too!
