First completed bag project for 2009


This bag started on Christmas eve while I was finishing the apron gift for my mother-in-law. Nothing like finishing a project in the nick of time is there? The apron managed to leave the house without being photographed......sadly! Although as I used the same fabric, you see the bag you have seen the apron just with frills!!!

My MIL is a dedicated apron wearer, and often leaves the house to visit a neighbour wearing her apron, so we decided this one could be her "going out apron" As her birthday is coming up on the 12th January, I thought a matching bag for her "going out apron" may be the very thing! What else do you give an 82 year old woman?

I have also had a chance to play around with text in my photographs thanks to the new updated Picasa, I love the idea of making the photos speak for themselves!
