My Red Home Bag finished.

Today I finally finished sewing my Red Home bag together. I am really pleased with the fabrics and as this bag will not be given to a friend but will be used by me, I decided to change the stitched words.  Both the house and words are from another Natalie Bird book called From the Heart printed back in 2007.

A house is made of wood and stone, but only love can make a home.

Bag back with some hand quilting on the floral piece.

Inside pocket for phone, notebook and pen.
I am so happy to be finished with a week to spare.
Hugs Noela.
