Second Bag for 2013

This bag is for my Grand daughter who lives in Melbourne Australia—She asked me could I make her one like the orange one but in Animal prints  This time I shopped for fabric in the new shop opposite Pak n Save in Lower Hutt—VIC corner—I must find out the name its a cool shop—Yes found what I wanted and away we go Fudge and I busy stitching again.

This bag is super and a real teenager’s bag—Its my granddaughters birthday—[19 years   not a teenager for much longer] in a week or so so NZ post do your thing and deliver it on time please.I also made a Mug Rug in Black n White  Hope she likes it again I know a few folks who loved it.

Kia-ora,  Happy New Year to all. I am back home after a few days  with friends in Thames and visiting my sister and  family in Auckland. The weather was kind to us while we were away and we came home well rested and ready for another year --of stitching with my best friend Fudge. We did manage lots of stitching last year hope for more this year.
While in Auckland my niece almost --I said almost managed to walk out with my super orange bag--She loved it so much I said I would make her one--It had to be exactly the same--First stop to  the fabric shop in Kilbirnie where I bought he fabric for my bag and my luck was in--They had two pieces of that floral  --Just enough for what I needed and they also had the fabric I used for the side panels as well as the black n white--
Ok Fudge here we go-- bag number 5 of this style--
There is a lot of work involved in this bag but its well worth it when you see the finished article

Kerri this ones just for you.or it will be if I can find the link to my computer for the photo.
