All in a day ....

It was my mums Birthday last week and I decided to make her a special bag as both of my parents are off on a cruise in September.

I thought this bag kit from my local fabric suppliers would go down well.
I really enjoyed making this and believe it or not it was all done in a day. I even managed to get some beads out and hand sewed them on to emphasise these gorgeous flowers.


Even though my mum was never really into sewing (she was a wonderful painter) I probably learned to sew from watching her. Although I was too young to remember there are some stunning pictures of me and my sister at a school fete wearing matching dresses that mum made.

I also remember her making me an outfit to wear at a Victorian day at school many years ago and I adored wearing it. She got every detail in from bloomers to apron.

I'm delivering this to her tomorrow - hope she likes it!!!!

I'm sure your mum will love it. But if she doesn't, send it my way please.
