I wanted to make a gift for a friend who has been incredibly good to us throughout tough times this year. I knew she had liked one of the lickety split mini bags I’d made previously so thought she might like one of her own. I scoured the internet for suitable fabric and found a funky owl print by David Textiles at Fabric Inspirations which I thought would suit my friend’s personality. As always service from Fabric Inspirations was excellent, with super quick delivery. They have a wonderful selection of funky fabrics – I could spend a fortune there and really have to restrain myself to only buying what I need. For the inside of the bag I bought a lovely Michael Miller stripe fabric from a seller on ebay.
I love the mini lickety split pattern by Made by Rae - I’ve made a few before but making this one has rekindled my love of making bags. It has been a while and I’ve missed it! The bag is so useful. I’ve made one for myself that I use all the time – lots of pockets and totally reversible, perfect!
I love the way it turned out and think the two fabrics work really well together. After wrapping nicely in tissue paper and ribbon I posted it to my lovely friend. Surprises in the post always make me happy and I think she was pleased with her present. She really deserved it!
