Happy Birthday Nan!

Well my initial idea of a funky bag made from Capri Sun juice pouches started well but i just couldn't figure a way of trying to finish it by adding handles etc.

So i decided a cloth bag from the curtain off cuts would be nice.

mum showed me how to do a french seam to make it neater. anyway i'm so proud of it and can't believe i made it! so some of the lines aren't too straight.... i seem to have issues still with machine sewing in straight lines and i had to hand sew on the handles. but it still looks super and i know she loves anything i hand make or decorate.
Previously i decorated flower pots, oven gloves and she uses both:

Here's the card i made for her too, as she has loads of these lilies in her garden.
