The Year 3 teachers at my boys' school (one of them being my eldest son's teacher) are really pleased with themselves as their kids achieved at or above national average level for an Australia wide school test.  As a thank you for all their hard work they put into those kids, I made them each one of these bags (3 in total) and filled it with some goodies to pamper them in the upcoming school holidays.  The bottom fabric is denim and the top fabric (and lining) is an apple print.  I interfaced the top section to make it similar in weight to the denim.  The little embellishment at the top of the bag is ric rac braid.  The handles are the denim fabric.  It's about 8 x 10 inches.  My younger son liked it so much, he wanted me to make one for his teacher.  So, in total, I made 4 of these suckers.  Enough chit chat, onto the picture:

Awww, that's so pretty and so nice of you!  I love apples this time of year (here in PA)...in fact, I just bought some apple-y fabric yesterday!  Smiley  Lovely bag and I'm sure the teachers loved them...just as I'm sure you're happy to be done working with the same thing 4 times over!!  Cheesy

Thanks for your lovely comments.

Definitely!!!  It was a production line.  But I think I made them alot quicker production line style than if I just did one at a time.
