Bags of fun ...

Lately I've been making Nicole Mallalieu's City Shopper Bag (from her book You SEW, Girl!) as a present for my neice who was turning 10 years old. Well, this week I finished it:

I agonised over the fabric choice in my favourite fabric shop for a little while, but I am really happy with it (don't you just love the retro bikes!).

I also made this for my 5 year old neice (a request from Nana):

And, not wanting to leave out the remaining sister, I made her this purse together with my first lot of fabric covered buttons (I'm addicted to making these buttons now ... ):

It's amazing what you can get done on a wet and gloomy ANZAC Day public holiday.
