Simple Happy Sewing

What a lovely, sunshiny Sunday we're having here today!
Maybe spring is truly, finally here! I do hope so.
The girls played in the park this morning and were so tired
they're both having naps right now. Which is perfect because
I get to have some peace and quiet and I might even
do a spot of crochet later. But first I'll show you the bags
I've just finished making for them.

They are simple tote bags made from calico fabric with 
their names appliqued on one side. I got the idea for these
from Gillian who made lovely personalised bags for her
kids last summer. I thought they would be handy for keeping
the girls' books and toys when we go on holiday or when 
they go to Nanny and Granddad's house. 

The girls love their bags and this makes me
very happy. Here's Markie with her bag.

And a very bored Lulu with hers.

She'd rather be watching Cebeebies.
Mummy's sewing may be lovely but it's not as interesting
as Mr.Tumble!

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

Back soon!


  1. At last, a few bright and sunny days with no rain, long may it continue! Lucky girls to have some a talented Mummy! These are lovely! Great fabric stash you have there, beautifully bright for Spring, and the little clog, beyond sweet!! Hope you get some crochet time later!

  2. Oh my goodness, your girls are sooo adorable!!! I love Lulu's picture acting all bored - priceless!

    Have a great day Marion.

  3. These are lovely! I love the spotty fabrics you used, and your girls are so cute. They have great names too. Thanks for sharing them, I hope your girls enjoy using them. My son took his football kit to school in his bag this morning! x
