A Fab Bag for a Fab Mum

It's made from some gorgeous Laura Ashley linen fabric (one of their most well known and popular designs), and is lined with a scrummy deep wine tafetta.

It's got a cute little internal pocket.

And the Moomin is constantly trying to swipe it for herself (bag obsessed at 2 years old - there's no hope!!)!

I made it for my Mum for her birthday. It's not until September, but I'm giving it to her this weekend, as she's been a bit poorly and needs cheering up (and she goes on her hols soon, and it's a perfect holiday bag!!).

The pattern is from the latest issue of Sew Hip. It was pretty straightforward to put together, it just took a bit of time to do. I'm quite pleased with it! :)

Hope everyone in Blogland is having an enjoyable Summer - despite the lack of summeriness in the weather!

It's a lovely bag, and you've definitely cheered mum up, from what I have seen !!
