A birthday bag


I made a bag. A library bag to be exact. 
It’s big and sturdy and will hold lots of books. 

My sister in law put the request out for a library bag for her birthday, so I hope that this will suit her needs. 

She’s not a person who likes the bright (sometimes garish) colours which I do, so I had to control myself when making the bag for her.  I used a Moda charm pack which I had in my stash and some quite heavy duty canvas at the base.  



I think it turned out quite nicely and am sure she’ll be able to fill it with books for herself and her kids when they go to the library.

Very sweet bag. It is a challenge making stuff for others when they like different stuff. I guess everyone is like that. It is a great challenge for us. "broadens our horizons" as my mom used to say.
Happy week-end coming, Anorina

A lovely sturdy bag that will certainly carry lots of books. It is difficult trying to make something using colours you don't usually use.
