I found out the other day that it was my sister-in-laws 19th bday in like 2 days time and I was going fabric shopping that day, so I thought "why not make her a bag?". The only problem is is that she doesn't like using bags. So then I thought "maybe if it's the RIGHT bag.....?". I picked out some material (dark blue denim and chinese brocade) and started sewing....

First attempt:

little pocket inside for her over-used cell Smiley

After making this I decided that I didn't like it with the stars - it sort of looked a bit little-kiddy-ish.


I got out the trusty unpick and started again...

Second Attempt:

(hubby being a very uncooperative model)

The ribbon I used was twice as wide and I couldn't find anything narrower so ended up folding in half and putting a seam down each side.

I gave it to her yesterday and she loved it! I really like how it turned out the second time Smiley

Thanks for looking.
