July's bag

And another bag finished, for the BQL challenge again.

As my niece was visiting us in England, I offered to do this one for her, she had the choice of the fabrics. She also decided on one pocket and the heart design in quilting.

As before the design was made by Kandy Newton for the challenge she organised on BQL to make a bag a month.

The 2 sides of the bag are identical.
The wadding is a bit thick which gives a good loft to the quilting. On the photo below on the right you can see our paper template for the heart, so easy to do.
The bag can fit an A4 paper.

And this shot to show the inside fabric.
Dorine loves it, and will take it back home in France in a few days.
I must say that it is now the school holidays, so I have been quite busy with my 4 girls and Dorine.
We try to show her around a bit- she came before- my husband was away on business and I feel like I am cooking a lot. There isn't much time available for sewing.
Luckily the weather has turned summery, at last, and we do enjoy that.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I wondered if you knew that you are set to 'no-reply' and so I find it difficult to reply to your nice comments :-)
