Next week our friend Lucia turns three and as she is a big fan of Olivia I hunted down some fabric when in Sydney to make her a library bag.
This was my first attempt at a bag, and luckily I got some great instructions from Cass and a few words of advice from our resident sewing 'expert' (my husband).
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - though I've learned that when attempting something for the first time perhaps you should not try to do one with a stitched on name, two colour outer and ribbon embellishment!
The rest of her pressie is a very cute seed bag with a pansy seed pack in it from Mike's that I couldn't resist last week, a long sleeved top ready for winter which has some little Japanese girls appliqued on the front and a mushroom pencil roll.
I got the Japanese girls fabric as part of a 16th pack from Edna and Alice May that I also picked up at Mikes.
So I'm hoping this bag of goodies will make for a happy little birthday girl.
