As we settle into Malvern better, the children get invited to more and more parties which is lovely but still poses a problem when I have to buy gifts but then I don't really know the parents or children. They have been invited to quite a few recently and I have actually known the children in the most recent cases. This allows me to get a little crafty and make presents for them. Here are 2 bags I have made in the last couple of weeks, one for a boy and one or a girl who were both turning 1.
I began by usng the bigshot to cut out some squares of fabric. I confess I love the fabric I used in the bonnet and so used it again with a few additions in places but the colour scheme was the same. Once I had 16 squares, I arranged them and then sewed them together.
