A Gift for a Friend


Its my friends birthday soon.

When it was my birthday she sent the most amazing surprise gift of a handmade apron that she had made out of a vintage sheet.

I wanted to make her a special birthday gift too. I really hope she likes her cute new bag.


Perhaps not the most practical sized bag for a mum to two little boys, but practical smactical, that's what I say!!!

It was made using this tutorial.

Challenge 14- Make at least 1 Christmas or Birthday present for a friend or family member- COMPLETE (I fully intend to make more presents for friends and family. I was being cautious when I wrote this challenge! The next couple of gifts for friends are already in the pipeline!)

  12. I. LOVE. THAT. BAG! What gorgeous fabric you have used. I have been meaning to make the buttecup bag for nearly 2 years now... I think I'd better get cracking! Way to spoil your friend! :)
    And Practical shmactical... I agree. I have 2 little boys. There are days when you just want something nice for yourself. That is what the undercarriage of the pram is for - lugging all the stuff that you refuse to put in your bag. :)
