Well, true to my word and because I was nagged a lot, I made something with that fabric.
|Bag in training ...|
I'm happy to report that my machine didn't blow up nor did the world end (as I had predicted) but I did get a very happy, now, 4 year old out of the process.
She's always wanted a bag just like her big sister's ... "but not Kitty mum". I didn't make the hello kitty bag that her sister owns, that was a gift from her Aunty.
I haven't been able to find a Sofia one "just the same Mum, but with Sofia" ... so I set to making one when we stumbled upon this fabric ... ahem.
I kind of followed my nose and this tutorial to make the bag ... I haven't made many bags, so this 3D world was a bit of a challenge, especially if you want it fully lined like I did. Of course I blamed all of the unpicking on the fabric and not my lack of bag making skills ... would you expect anything less?
But with a mild dose of patience and a large dose of champagne, I got there in the end.
Her smile when it was finished ... was everything.
PS here are some pics from our shiny new 4 years old's birthday ... in case you missed it on IG :)
