Isabella's best friend, Sam is having his 3rd birthday in a couple of weeks so this weekend I made him his own superman cape from the Puking Pastilles tutorial to go with his presents. I love that the Superman "S" also works for "Sam"!
I reallllly wanted the Amy Butler Swing bag pattern. I even sent my poor mother-in-law into her local shop in Ballarat, Victoria as they had them listed on their website, but alas, none left. I may order it from the USA if I can't get it out of my head :-) She did apparently get me a Melly & Me pattern, but it's a surprise which one! I'm secretly hoping it's Under the Sea or Magoo the Monkey (so I can make one for my little monkey :-) but heck, they are all so nice it doesn't really matter!.
Trying to find another bag to make, I found a lovely Lotus Bag tutorial from the Craft Apple blog. So off to Spotlight I went and found some nice subtle flowers fabric and some cream courdoroy. The cord works really well as the lining fabric as it's nice and heavy and I made a nice pocket on the inside, perfect size for my Blackberry. It even got a test run outside when I took Isabella shopping yesterday afternoon. Pretty pleased with the results.
