A Bag for Anna

Today was the last day for Anna who I work with at Nursery.  She is forging ahead with her career to become a teacher and she will be fab.  As I think everyone needs a new bag when they start school this is what I made her for a leaving gift.  Spotty on the inside with London print on the outside with a spotty bow.

London print from Fabrics Galore, Lavender Hill, London

Spotty from Dunelm Mill, Dotty label from the selvedge of fabric

Big spotty bow

Very spotty

Anna loved the bag and was impressed when I said I had made it.  She said I had been hiding my skills - I then declared to Toni 'What a Hoot Pants' that I write a blog and they all squealed.  If you are reading this girls HELLO!! 

Guess what - I'm off on my holidays tomorrow.  Cornwall here we come.  Yeahhhh!!!!

Hoping this will post as Blogger was naughty earlier 'sorry showing inappropriate behaviour and lost my post' - bleat.

Well it seems to have behaved itself enough to show your post and I'm glad it did. Fabulous bag and I do love the London fabric. May have to get myself some of that.
Have a great holiday.

That is just the most lovely bag. Lucky Anna. And Happy Holidays to you :D

Wow, I love that bag what a lucky lady! I saw that fabric at FOQ, it works so well on the bag with the dots and love the bow. Wish they did fabric mail order as their prices were really good, thats where I did all my fabric shopping. Hope to see you soon. I'm going on a workshop on Saturday, it seems ages since the last one!
Have you seen the photos of us on the wall in the family workshop room at the Harley Gallery from the Easter workshop?
