A bag for Blossom!


As much as I enjoy sewing for others, I really enjoy stitching for my 15yo daughter! She loves green and pink with white at the moment and before we began the huge road trip to move here she chose this bird design by Bronwyn Hayes (at least I think it was Bronwyn Hayes, I've misplaced the pattern sheet I got it from) for me to stitch with those colours.

She really loved the bag I made for Sarah, so she asked me to make her one the same but with her chosen stitchery on the front.

So what did I do this weekend?

Made my Blossom happy :-)

Hugs,
Jenny

Beautiful. It's such fun to sew for our daughters. Mine gives me slightly challenging ones---oilcloth liner for computer bag, portfolio cover using organic fabric in a funky shape. I meet the challenges and she's happy.

The bag is beautiful! I really like the embroidered piece on it. How did you attach that to the bag? Was it handsewn on after all the quilting was done?
