I brought some pretty notebooks back from holiday, as I thought they’d be perfect for a couple of friends who have their birthdays this month. They looked as if they needed something nice to put them in and I spotted just the thing in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
They’re gift bags with lots of different fabrics plus some felt appliqué. I hadn’t made anything like them before, nor had I done appliqué but the instructions looked very clear so I had a go.
I did one with pink flowers on it.
The base of the bags is shaped.
I think my friends both liked their bags, and I learnt how to make something new, so I’m calling this project a success.
