July's end

Whoops... I nearly forgot to post my bag for July!

I was going to use my pass this month... then visited our new fabric shop ... these fabrics just jumped out at me and said they wanted to be a bag.....so I just HAD to get them.

Here it is...










I also didn't use the penguin stitchery...the fabric had birds, so I just had to go with an appliqué bird from Natalie Bird's Red Home book.


Till next month
Cheers Lea
