When looking for something to stitch for Karen for her birthday, i came across this Just Nan design and the Sleeping Angel charm in my 'Mary Poppins bottomless bag' (i bet you all have a stash one too!). I put some little goodies into the bag for her too. Fabric was 28ct antique white laguna and the threads are DMC with the addition of gold and white Mill Hill seed beads.
I hope you've had a lovely Birthday Karen, it was really lovely to have a little chat with you on the phone this morning. x
The first time i made one of these little bags was in December for a non-stitching friend who turned 40. I wanted something to hold the glass 'fabulous forty' gift i bought. A bourse came to mind but then i found a tutorial for the lined bag here. I didn't show it last month as i wanted Karens to be a nice surprise. Design is from Just Nans 'Heartfelt' stitched on 28ct sky blue brittney using DMC.
Have a good weekend whatever your plans
