Make My Week #9 Bags

I’ve seen a lot of bunting around over the last wee while but I haven’t seen it on a bag until I did it myself. (although there may be others doing it of course!)

I love the way bunting makes anything feel happy and celebratory.

This bag is quite big and I’ve fully lined it in gorgeous ‘old Mother Hubbard’ fabric and added a cell-phone pocket to make it more useable.

I made 2 of these but I won’t keep either. 1 is for a beautiful mama facing a very difficult journey of watching her 3 year-old go through cancer treatment – more info here. I’ll tell you where the other one is going next week.

I did some free-motion work to make the words – I am getting more confident at it. Made entirely from things in my stash.

More Creative Spaces here.

And because I especially love this bag and how craft can be a bright star in a dull day I’m joining in with Simone and other bloggers picking their favourite post of the week.
