Fabric child's bag

    Fun bag for a special girl

 Just last Friday we returned home from a seven week holiday in America and Canada, I delighted in the fabric stores.
Although I didn't buy a lot, a few fat quarters found their way into my bag and home to New Zealand with me.
I had pined this lunch bag tutorial about a year ago from Ayumi at    Pink Penguin
Such a clear well written tutorial to make this wee bag, thank you Ayumi.

I used my fat quarters from  Joann fabric and craft store's, I wanted to make it fun so a little house was created.

I machined the leaves and stalks, just straight stitch then added the flowers from trim I had bought from M & J trimmings  NY.

    The white lace is supposed to be a little picket fence, I should have sewn it up slightly higher as it ended right on the fold line.

                                   I modified the original pattern slightly, making the base smaller and adding a cardboard bottom to it.  The fat quarters I used all worked well together, see it's all lined ready to go.

                        Just a small project, but I'm pleased with how its turned out. I will save it for my Grand Daughters birthday, I'm sure a few treasures will be carried with joy.
