A Beautiful Bag

Before I got into crafting my main expenditure went on handbags. I love them! So I was really excited when my friend Jennifer invited me round to her house and said that she would make a bag for me!

Jennifer very kindly let me go through her stash of fabric, ribbon, flowers and buttons and made an across the body bag for me. It also has smaller handles so that I could hold it if I wanted to. The black fabric is from Ikea and I love the bright colours, they really make me smile and her stitching is beautifully straight, something I cannot do! 

Jennifer made the top part of the bag with a lovely vibrant green and accessorised with pink and black ribbon and a flower. AND she did all this whilst I watched and chatted away! Would I be able to make one myself now? Probably not, but then I am very lucky because she has made me a shoulder bag too that I just can't wait to show you.

And the exchange? I am going to show her how to make mini albums and let her rummage through all my papers and that could take a while!

Thanks again Jennifer!
