Tara's book bag

I have made Tara a book bag for school as I made her sister one and didn't want to leave Tara out!

Tara chose the fabric and I'm quite pleased she picked this one as it is a lined curtain so is quite thick. I got it in the charity shop although it's originally a Next one.

I kept the tab tops on as they double up as the fastenings!

With a little help from some velcro of course!

The back - with a Swirlyarts tag naturally. You never know who might be looking at it!

She rather likes it - and carried it all the way up to school.

It's nice when your crafting is well received! Or course, big sister now doesn't like her plain turquoise one and wants one just the same - good job there is some spare material!

How clever is that - it's gorgeous! I think you could set a trend with that one :)

That's ace. Not like the boring green we have here!

She has fabulous taste in fabric already, and there's certainly no harm in doing a bit advertising too!

What a happy little girl to have such a clever Mum. My daughters tell me they are lucky to have a Mum who sews as they can ask for individual looking items whenever they want (they think!). Cherrie
