I have a friend who was born on leap day - 29 February. She says that she doesn't have a birthday and only celebrates when her date comes up. That makes me so sad - I look foward to my birthday every year. I say that she should celebrate on the 28th AND the 1st.
She is special - she should get to celebrate more than the rest of us! Don't you agree?
Last year I made this for her. This year I made her this pretty teal cross-body bag.
I posted it to her yesterday, all wrapped up in tissue paper and string and packaged in one of my pretty pink mailing bags. If I must confess, I am just a little anxious - a) what if the postman doesn't bring it to her today? and b) what if she hates it?
Ava's little Croc's bag was my inspiration. I think that I need to make another grown up version for me! Maybe add a little fabric flower too. Once I have made a few tweaks to the pattern and the way that I assembled it, I thought I might add a few to my shop or maybe create a pattern for it. What do you think?
