Yesterday I gave one of the presents away so I can show you something! One of the three.
Last week I went to a 'fabric shop' for fabric for my classroom decoration and I found this one. It is a 'leather like fabric' which I've never tried before. It was not very easy to sew, but my Mum was so happy it was worth the work.
And I have a black and white bag (which I think I forgot to show here) which I lended to my Mum as they were invited to a Black and White Party. She enjoyed wearing the bag and told me a lot of nice things about it.
When I saw this fabric I got the idea to make the same pattern of that magical fabric. I found a little piece of vanilla leather like fabric which I got in summer (actually it was a really very small piece, it was enough for the two flowers only) plus I used some nice multicolour thread to decorate the bag (leaf pattern - free mashine stitched) The inside part is brown musleen. It was quite a big rush and I made a mistake in the middle which I recognized when I nearly finished the whole bag, so I had to start again.... which made the whole process an even bigger rush, but finally it is ready!
Yesterday I gave it to Mum on her nameday (yes, we calebrate namedays here)
Here are some pics about it. (In real life it is a bit lighter I think)
