My Daughter's Bag

My daughter Josephine is having her birthday next Saturday and I thought I would make her a bag. I already had the fabric bought for the job and thought, why don't I make the bag for her birthday and put her other presents into it.

She loves green, pink and purple put together and the hardest thing making the bag was picking the right fabric. I felt the bag needed something else so I designed 4 pockets to go on the front and the back. She not only loves those colours, but loves buttons so each pocket has a pretty button on it.

Oh Clare it is so funny how things at times happen. I was just thinking bower bird and that was all. Ha ha!!! Yes, I think you are living up to your name.

Thank you for the lovely comment about Josephine's bag.
