    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.

    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

    Tres bien. I love the color and the dolls.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    What an original idea! Beautiful job.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The pictures turned out just fine. I'm sure Lucille loves her bag. It is unique and all hers made with love by you. I think she is the envy of her classmates.
