    A Birthday bag. 24 buttons!

    This bag was great fun to make. I have never bound an outside seam before, other than on a quilt. Turns out much the same in technique, but the corners were a bit more of a challenge.
    Anyway it's been given today and it was received with overwhelming delight. She was very pleased and surprised.
    The pattern is taken from an Australian Magazine that I had marked the page in specifically for this pattern. I had to sew 24 buttons on. That hurt a bit, being rather careful with materials at the moment. It had to be done though because it would have spoiled the overall effect had I not done it. Hope you like it.
    Oh and for those of you who kindly gave their advice and preferences for my DWR colours, much appreciated thank you. I have gone with the "soft look" and will not be adding in any darker colours. I will keep you posted as to me progress.

    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.
