I made this for a friend for her birthday. The pattern/inspiration is from Handmade Magazine Vol 31 Number 2 by Jemima Flendt. I varied slightly in the number of pen/pencil spots inside. It was really quick to make up and I had everything on hand. I used fabric from my stash – no idea by who or how old! The buttons are from basic grey and the orange twine is from We R Memory Keepers.
My girls liked it so I suggested instead of buying gifts for their friends maybe I could make something like this next time they have a party. So you might see a few more variations here.
After a recent tidy up of my room I have found lots of things I forgot I had – need to be a bit more productive using supplies. I found fabric to make Miss A (8) pants for school – great I can cross those of the school holiday shopping list. Fabric to make Miss E (17) a handbag. YEAH. I started on a quilt for Miss S (13) – cut out the fabric and got main panel of the quilt together – will show in another post. Debating at the moment whether to put a border or not. I also found lots and lots of Unfinished projects in a very full box. It is bit embarassing – skirts/dresses from too many years ago – cut, sewn, almost finished just requiring a hem or a button! Must finish those and give to someone who can use them.
Hope the Easter Bunny found you and you had a lovely and safe Easter.
Thanks for taking a peek.
