Default Russian inspiration for my Lucille

Last year, Lucille who was still going to the kindergarten, torned her small school bag.
I've been looking for a while for a new one but the ones I saw where too big, too small, to expensive, too tacky, not the right colors... 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.

The front


The back


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
