Mini flat bottomed bag

I used the pattern from to create this 'flat bottomed' bag.  I've used her pattern several times to create bags but not tried one with corners like this.  I got very confused by the instructions until I got my husband to help with it! Despite that, I'm actually quite pleased with how it worked and will be trying it again with a bigger bag.  I made this one very small just so I could practise, but I might make some as gift bags for Christmas now!

Dinosaur Bag

Another one of my family popular bags :o) This one was for my sister for her birthday.  As she likes dinosaurs I found some gorgeous fabric with them on and made her a bag from it.  I added a single pocket to the inside this time so you can see more of the pattern on the outer bag.  I was pleased with the result as I had to improvise from the existing pattern to get it all working!

Toy sleeping bag

My daughter's favourite toy is Darf the giraffe (of which we have 3) and today 'he' asked for a sleeping bag and a new pillow.  Apparently his previous pillow was no good as he kept 'falling off it'.  So Mummy made a new one for him.

My daughter chose the material for him, so hopefully it will do this time!
