Secret Sewing = A Bag


This is the result of my secret sewing I mentioned a week or so ago. It is an across the body bag I made for my daughter's birthday. (Miss 20 is now Miss 21. Gosh time flies!!!) She doesn't have it yet, but it is on it's way so I thought I would show it to you.

I used about 5 or 6 pieces from a layer cake. (This is homecoming) I am really quite pleased with it.

I put the words on here because my daughter's hometown is printed on them. (See the "Adelaide" on the top row!)


This is the back and then the inside is below. A pocket for a mobile phone and a zipped pocket are essentials in every bag I make. I hope she likes it!

I love the Hometown fabric and it looks brilliant as a bag - love the label and all the pockets. I am sure it will be well loved. Happy Birthday to Miss 21.

Beautiful and you even had 21 on it as well. It looks like a really useful bag and you can see where everything is inside which makes it a lot easier when you're looking for something.

oh we love that little bag and may have to get onto it today. I think maybe some Bali pop, would look great for my little boho 17 yr old. I love that it says Adelaide my home town too.
