Drawstring Bag


I wanted to make a baby gift for a friend who had just become a Grandma for the first time
So i found this lovely pattern in Natalie Bird's book called All creatures Great and Small


So i had checked with my friend on the Nursery colours and made a start,i also found some grey ric rac to sew around the stitchery.


I love this pattern and after the stitchery was done it was quick to put together.

 I used a cottage garden thread called cloudy day which is a variegated grey


Think i will make some more of these and put them in the pressie box,a great gift to have on standby.



A big happy birthday to my mum she turns 80 today ,luv you heaps mum and i am so proud of you.
