A deal

Does this sound fair?
A friend of mine who was once a chef makes the very best sponges.
Tony loves them.
So Tony brokered a deal I would make this bag for her and she would make him some sponges.

Bag for Heather

this is another bag from Lisa Lam's "Bag making Bible" I have definitely got my money out of this book.
Heather wanted the bag for her daughter who has just had a baby. I think it is perfect for a new mum as it is very roomy and has lots of pockets.

Bag for Heather

the most scary part of this bag was these snap locks....... I always worry about them working out................. and if they don't having a hole in the bag.

I have also made another pencil roll for one of the women from gym........... she wanted pink I think I covered that.

I want to see pictures of cake!

The bag is nice though...

Exactly how many cakes does one get for a bag? Im curious.

Lorraine said...

I agree with Periwinkle...you are the bag making queen! Not sure how many sponges you get for one bag though! ....or should I say how many sponges Tony gets!

Once again you've created something pretty special Leanne. I agree-you are the bag making queen. I must get that book you refer to - I've made quite a few bags but find that a lot are a bit on the small side. Please make more stuff soon and post - you are an inspiration! Jill x

Lovely bag and pencil roll is pretty cute. Just wondering how much longer Squid can sleep through the house being demolished next door, sounds like they are on our doorstep.

Now I need you to read between the lines here leanne - I need one of those bags!!
