This one is for my niece who turned 15 on the weekend. I bought the flap fabric (a furnishing fabric - there are some beautiful and exciting furnishing fabrics around - I think I love them all!) toward the beginning of the year when I was buying some batting. I happened to walk past it and immediately thought of my niece. I knew that I'd be making her a bag for her next birthday, so I popped it in the pile of bag-making-fabrics where it stayed until a week ago. I sent my sister a photo of the fabric before starting, just to check that I was on the right track with my fabric selection. What was really lovely for me was when my sister reminded me that when my niece was a little girl she would gently 'catch' butterflies on her hand. She loves butterflies! So I had chosen the perfect fabric. Does that mean that I'm a really great Aunty (or not, because I didn't remember!)?
One of these days I'll do a tutorial for one of these - they are so easy!
My niece loved the bag, so again, I am absolutely thrilled!
My next project is to complete the charity quilt that I am making with Christine's scraps as part of her Scrap Bag Challenge.
What do you think my quilt will look like? The top is three quarters finished and it is only small, so it should be finished very soon...
