Happy Birthday Juju

My gorgeous lil blister turned 20 today.  So being the procrastinator I am of course I only started her present today.

I hope you are happy Juju as I cut into my gorgeous Michael Miller fabric for you 😀 (though that means nothing to you really does it hehe)

 

A day of busyness……..

Pattern Used: Amy Butler Frenchy Handbag

Fabric Used: Michael Miller Daisy Dreams – and a contrasty seaspray bluey green from the bottom of my fabric stash

Time to make – all day – well ok not really, I made it when I could grab a few moments of time away from the kidlets.

Getting prepared

 Amy Butler Frenchy Handbag

I love the wee little pleats on the front – they don’t show up well in the picture but they really are sweet 🙂 Overall a reasonably easy pattern – everything is explained for you. Now I’ve done one of Amy Butlers patterns I’m almost ready to tackle the weekender bag 😀
