Miss 'E' started Kindy this year, and was terribly excited about needing a library bag. She is always 'needing' a new bag of some description and this time she knew her needs were warranted! I wanted her to have a pretty little library bag that was easily distinguished from the others. And I wasn't bowing to the pressure of buying a mass produced, licensed character one!
This is what we came up with.
A blank calico bag, a few crochet granny squares, an appliquéd letter 'E', a little bit of ric rac, a fabric scrap, some grosgrain ribbon and a handful of vintage buttons.
My love for vintage and retro fabric is going strong, and my stash of vintage sheets is steadily growing. I have a lot of photos that I haven't posted, so over the next few days I am going to post them all. Just to clear the backlog of photos.
This year I made notebook covers and christmas ornaments as gifts for my boy's school teachers. The ornaments are made from cornflower & bi-carb soda and were so much fun to make (miss "E" and I made quite a big mess)
