Chair Bag

Well, it has been a while since I posted! We have moved house, our holiday has been and gone and Rose has started school. Needless to say, sewing has taken a back seat to other activities lately! :-)

Last week I decided to make Rose a chair bag for school. Her teacher told me that they had taken them off the stationery list as they were becoming increasingly hard to find in stores. A trip to the local stationery store confirmed this for me. It seems that most of the kids in her class had been given bags from friends or older siblings and I was determined that she would have one too. :-)

After a bit of research on Google, I made up my own pattern and used existing fabrics from my stash. I had picked up the cute pink print fabric from a curtain store as a remnant, not knowing what I would do with it. It was perfect for the chair bag!

It didn't take me long but I felt a great sense of achievement upon it's completion! I cut out the blonde curly haired girl from the fabric and appliqued it onto the bottom of the bag, Rose thinks it looks like her. :-)
