Last week I made the bag on the right for one of my daughter's friend's birthdays.
I also made her a matching pencil and notebook folder:
I'm very happy to say she loved her gifts.
It's always nice to give handmade and be able to personalise a gift with colours for somebody!
The pencil and notebook folder I made using my own tutorial from a couple of years ago. This is a favourite gift to make for my daughter's friends and always well received!
The backpack was a new design and I've just finished the tutorial and pattern.
I had to make another to make sure I'd got it right..
and I think I might just keep this one for myself!
The tutorial and pattern for this bag, which I made using stretch knit fabric, and fabric and a pocket from old pairs of jeans, is going to be available exclusively to subscribers to Creating my way to Success.
