DIDDY BAG!

The challenge on FISKARETTES last week was to work with fabric in some way. I am a bit late for this one as this challenge was for last week but never mind.

My little niece, Millie, is coming up for two and has started to go 'shopping' around the house with a paper bag hahahahaha. I thought I would make her a real little bag to carry her finds in. Its pretty diddy at 6"x5" but big enough for her. You just cannot teach these girlie habits young enough can you??? hahahaha



The main part is of cotton...the outside being orange and the lining & strap being lime green. The heart & flowers are in felt. A button and some gorgeous ric-rac finished it off. Everything is sewn down VERY securely as well!!!! Oh and it really is square, although it doesn't look it in the photo.

Thank you so much for taking the time to have a look and I love yo read your comments! Take care XXX
