I wanted to give my friend something a little different and special for her 18th birthday, but that didn't cost the earth either.

When a favourite band of ours released their new album recently I had the perfect idea. A tote bag to match the cover of the album.

I dyed the calico bag blue. Twice, as the first time it was way to pale... and sort of lilac :/ It's a little dark now but I think it's better than too pale.

The album cover is a stuffed knitted heart so I knitted one side of a heart and sew this onto the bag, with a little bit of stuffing (hopefully you can sort of see this from one of the photos)

I can't wait to give it to her when I see her next month. Hopefully she'll really like it  Smiley
