Evening all, hope everyone has had a super xmas, we're just winding down and getting ready for beddy-byes Smiley  As such though I've now given this bag to my MiL (since I was  hosting xmas for the first time today Shocked) as an xmas gift so I'm safe to put it on here now!  Was sewing it until mid yesterday still as I've been working on so many gifts, lol.

She loooooves bats and I toyed with the idea of doing a bat shaped bag and what have you, or a bag with a like layered bat applique thing on like a did for a friend (tho that was with a fishy) but looked through my fabric stash and thought a bit and ended with this Cheesy


Lower half is black corduroy from a shirt MiL in fact gave me for bag-making, and the main material is a like thickish cotton (curtain/upholstery thickness) with twig/tree print on that I hadn't been sure how to use.  I made the bats from felt using freehand paper templates I made. 


Hope you like it, I'm totally in love with it and I'm not even in love with bats so hope she loved it Smiley  Happy xmas all!

I love this bag!  What a perfect background fabric; it looks fabulous.  This coming from one who hates BATS!!  I once had one tangle in my hair-it was a horrible experience.
I'm sure your MIL loved it.  Homemade gifts are the very best.
