Have handles, make bag

On Tuesday I received a lovely surprise, it was the handle that I'd won from Annie our lovely felt fairy. So I couldn't wait to make a bag to use for my crochet bits (I'm staring crochet classes tomorrow so of course have to have a special bag and none of the dozens of bags I have will do!)
After careful deliberation I decided to use some of my favourite Laura Ashley fabric. I worked for LA years ago when I became "single" and spent a whole months salary on bedding and fabric for my bedroom in this pattern. I still love it 17 years later!
I've been trying to do as much sewing as possible and have made more ouch pouches
I'm also working on another project although all is not going to plan, but I will keep going and hopefully with a few tweeks it'll work out. Here's a little peek..
Well amazingly the sun is shining today so think I'll give Daisy a treat and take her for a walk in her favourite place, the beach.
Hope the sun is shining on all of you!

I hope Daisy likes her walk on the beach! That will be a treat, i know my Daisy loves a good old run about, but she sniffs the sand and ends up sneezing all the way home!
I love the pretty bag you made, and the ribbony bow too!
