This week's finish was actually finished the week before Christmas but I just didn't get around to blogging about it then. Better late than never.

So without further ado.....Introducing the Melly and Me Sleepover bag.

This was Mum's Christmas present. The fabric is Blush with some co-ordinating spots and stripes bought from Hettie's Patch. The pattern is the Sleepover, which I bought from Fabric Patch. The O-rings, cute decorative zipper pull and metal feet came from Nicole Mallalieu. How I love internet shopping!

This bag is huge! For the photo shoot I packed it full of 6 towels, 3 hand towels and 5 face washers. So clearly the sleepover bag can pack some heat! The bag itself was quite easy to make - joining the top and bottom sections took some fiddling but I got there in the end. I wouldn't recommend making this bag unless you have made bags before. The pattern could have done with a few more diagrams for the assembly part of the process.

All in all a gorgeous bag. Mum loves it and can't wait to tell people that she made it herself.

I mentioned in a previous post that we have a cat called Lizzie.....here she is trying to get in on the Sleepover photo shoot.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Lizzie. It is unnatural to love a cat so much.


  1. Well done on the bag........I can't imagine your mother claiming fame for that bag.

  2. I can't believe you took my bag back, posted photos, and claimed it as your project!! In all seriousity, I love my bag that you made, and can't wait to give it an airing at the next retreat. Thanks heaps! Mum xox


I'm glad you popped by, your comments really make my day.
