Hillary's Competition Submission

Regular readers will already know that I am taking part in 'Hillary's' competition for bloggers, and that not being able to choose between two projects I went with both the shorts and the bag!

Unfortunately I'm only able to submit one of the two for consideration. After much deliberating I've gone with ...the bag! I'm calling it my 'Firenze Day Bag' as it was designed for sightseeing in Florence and Rome.

There's more info about it's construction HERE, but just to recap -a few of it's features are;

  • Waxed cotton adjustable cross-body strap
  • Waxed cotton (waterproof) quilted base
  • Polka dot contrast lining with internal pockets
  • Zip fastening
  • Adjustable lobster clasp strap (for altering the bag size)

Much as I love how the shorts turned out and I'm sure I'll get a lot of usage from them if we finally get a little warm weather, I'm most pleased with my little bag -plus being expandable it's already proved super useful when caught without a carrier (I was amazed at how many groceries I could squeeze in -Mary Poppins eat your heart out!).

So a huge thank you to Hillary's for the fabric, and lastly a little 'Happy Mother's Day' to all the Mums for tomorrow (funnily I'll be making a second bag like this for a Mother's Day gift). Wishing everyone a great weekend! x
