Roses and Gingham Bag

Today I thought I'd show you this bag I made as a very special commision for a lovely blogging lady. You may notice that it is made from Roses and Gingham fabric, as is my quilt, which is where the name for my shop came from!

It was really enjoyable to make, and I felt very proud sending it off to its new owner.

I hope I'll be able to add some tote bags to my shop soon, once all that uni work is out of the way! I have one cut out waiting for me to play, which I might get sewn up today when I take a little break from work.

Thanks for all the lovely comments about the bunting cards, I may add some to the shop if I get some time. Keep your eyes peeled!

Hope you all have a lovely day, I will try to get round the blogs and say hello soon! X

  6. The bag is gorgeous Gem!
    I know a little girl who would love one (my DD). Can I ask how much you charge, she has a birthday coming up and she would love it especially knowing it was made by you. That is of course if you have time what with uni work.
    Take care

  11. I just spotted this bag on the buyer's blog! It's lovely, isn't it? Your bunting cards are really cute, aren' they? My 10-year old son is currently helping me to make my first ever bunting - it's so much more fun with help!

  12. Gorgeous! you clever thing. I love the floral fabric you used. I promise I will help you with your cv this weekend. It's a good time to get some applications out there before the rush, especially given that hardly any companies are hiring (I know mine isn't).
