Cute owls, bright colours, pretty fabric and a super cute, easy pattern?
Once again, this is one of the benefits of using my library card. Even though my sons are now teens, I wanted to have a look through Oliver + S Little Things to Sew: 20 Classic Accessories and Toys for Children by Liesl Gibson. It's a gorgeous book! I fell in love with design she has for making a child size messenger bag. I knew it would be a perfect gift for my 3 year old niece, so I started through my stash to see what I could come up with.
I had everything I needed, right down to the bag hardware! This is where my thrift sale forays have paid off - see the blue slider on the bag strap? Yep. Thrifted. I had no idea what I would eventually use it for when I bought it, but I never worry too much about that when I find such goodies.
thrifted zippers I have...lol ).
Jacqueline for the scraps she's shared with me). They add just the right touch. Shall I admit that I've already cut out another bag? Whooooo can resist? Not me. ;o)
