Wellington, New ...
Mother’s Day Gift Idea (or stocking stuffer at Christmas time)
I saw this little bag in a shop when I visited Wellington in November 2009 and I’ve been planning to make myself one ever since. I’ve seen a few more around since then and considering Mother’s day is not far away it’s the perfect excuse to make a few to give away (and of course one for me). Now here’s the crazy part, I bought all my fabric, sketched myself a plan of attack, made a pattern and got underway. I figured it would be nice to share a little tutorial and pattern here and then one of the blogs I followed shared this link! It’s the craziest timing but I guess not so much so when you consider the time of year. I have chosen to share my version anyway, it never hurts to have a couple of points of view and I am sure between my scribbles and ikat’s amazing photos others can make some cute bags too :) I love that we chose similar fabrics too and I am glad I’m not the only one obsessing over mini strawberries that turn into carry bags :) I hope you like, they are so quick to whip up and I look forward to seeing your versions.
