The Bag Beginning
Some time ago Olivia asked me if I'd make her friend Nina a bag like her messenger bag - she frequently takes it when she goes to Nina's for a sleepover, etc and I think it's been admired. I was requested, however, to make it in black and lots of colours - I knew what she meant, as her bag is black with teal pinwheels. Nina's birthay is coming up in March, so I decided it was time to get to the bag if I wanted it as a birthday present. So today, I raided my scrap stash (this was the neatly cut squares of the stash) for a variety of different coloured scraps, and made them into pinwheels and stitched it together into the two main bag panels. Next step is to quilt the panels, then they get assembled into the bag proper. I have to say, as usual, it didn't make much of a dent in my scrap stash!
