It all began some years ago with my sister making me these:
Then recently, my aunt made me this:
And then sent me this:
Then a friend had a birthday I couldn’t attend, so I made her this:
And another friend saw that and heavily hinted that it was her birthday the following week. And because she’s such a close friend, I made the bag to her specifications and included a little matching purse (had never made one of these before). I also gave her a gift voucher to my favourite Townsville bookstore, Mary Who?
And after that I was blown away by how quick and easy these things are. So I made this for another friend (because honestly, I wasn’t overly keen on the fabric but knew she’d adore it):
And then I thought it was time I made something for myself. So – shopping bags:
They’re much classier than ugly green supermarket bags, and could be used for knitting or some such as well. Am so excited that these are so quick and easy to make.
