Another early Bird Christmas Gift finished....




Well the suspense is over with two of the tea towels made up into this kindergarten bag for my great niece.I didn't have enough of the green to make the lining totally out of it so I duplicated the outer bag minus the applique and voila a bag was made.I'm also planning on making a few other bits for her to fill the bag up.
I made the bag up using only what I had in my stash,some left over green I've been using for curtains that are going to go around my tables in my sewing room and the green and orange fabrics from my scrap box.So total cost of the bag was aound $6 as I bought the DMC threads when they were on special.Not bad for a bag!
Stay tuned for the third and final tea towel to be made into......... well you'll have to keep guessing till I post a photo LOL :)
