Paperbag Swap.

This is the bag I made and sent to Leah for Missymack's paper bag swap. Leah loves owls so I decided to applique and embroider one on the front of the bag. The bag is lined and has a zippered pocket inside. I am pleased with the owl. I think he's very cute!

Usually when I make something I just make it up as I go, but don't tend to keep a record of what I have done. Mrs 24 (picklesticks) has been encouraging me to keep a record of what I have done so that I can write up a pattern to put in my etsy shop. I was planning to have the pattern for this bag in my etsy shop next week, but our pending move has put me a little behind. The pattern should be finished next week, so look out for it if you would like to make a cute bag!!!

Kirs, you're just too clever. The bag looks lovely and I'm sure Leah will be thrilled. Very cute.

Hye, can you elaborate on why your Mrs24 is Picklesticks? or should I ask her?

When do you move? Hope all goes well. I hate moving and re-arranging. But it is exciting.

Cheers - Joolz
