    Cute bag! Hate to bring this up but we don't put names on anything a stranger In public might see. As long as she knows to never answer to strangers who call her by name!

    Really cute bag, but I have to agree...........it really worries me that her name is on it for a stranger to see.
    In this day I'm hate to say it but you have to be very very careful there are all kinds of crazy's out there!!
    Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour. Grasp it, sense it - tremulous and tender.
    Turn your face away from the garish light of day, turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light - and listen to the music of the night!

    Softly, deftly, music shall carress you. Hear it, feel it, Secretly possess you.

    Just too cute...as always - from your other photos sent - your applique is wonderful. I bet she is so proud of her bag.

So I decided one afternoon to do one myself; I took my pen, a white sheet and I designed this little one with russian dolls appliqué, some stitcheries and a few quilting. Hope you enjoy it as I did when I made it.
    Sorry for the photos quality, they're the only ones I took from it with my phone and now the poor bag isn't really neat to be photographed
    it is delightful! and the pictures are just fine. as to it not being a good subject to photo now...well. aren't you glad...she must love it, or she wouldn't use. glad you took the plunge and created on your own. i did this for toys, clothing coverlets & quilts for my son as he grew up. and now he is married and thrills to all the "special" things his wife makes for thier little ones.

    they do remember, our young.

    Well how cute is that. What a great idea. I have the same problems for my gds. They are going to Taiwan and will need pack packs (aka back packs)

    Lucille, I know adored your book bag! Such a beautiful job, to be cherished. Your pictures are great. Thanks for posting! Makes me want to do the same for my granddaughter. BTW, I named my daughter Lucille after her grandmother!
    Believe, it can be done!

    The bag is so beautiful, and I love the Russian Dolls on it. You must be so proud of it.
