    Birthday Bag for friend/neighbour

    I made this bag for Joan my friend whose birthday was on 12th Aug. She asked for a shopping bag (market tote). I made it a bit fancier because it was her birthday present, with some wine, home made Whiskey Marmalade and Plum Jam. She was pleased. The bear is Bernard, my DGS's best friend left me in charge of his care while he stays with his Mum for a week. Such responsibility and honour!

    I absolutely love it! I'm sure your friend will also. Is the inside the same print as on the bottom of the handles?

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Yes the print is the same for both inside and the handles. Thanks for your comments and interest.
