It's my youngest daughter, Annabel's, 21st birthday on Friday so I am rushing around organising things. She wanted money from us, so that she can start saving for a house deposit and I didn't want to just put the cheque in an envelope, so I searched around for something a little more special.
I made this little tote bag using a template from Creations by AR
My pictures don't really do this justice - the paper is GCD Studios Ella Blue, and it has a lovely linen texture and a faint, glossy text design that my camera hasn't picked up very well.
I thought the little key charm was appropriate for a 21st, but it looked a little bare, so I put a heart on there too and tied on some ribbon.
The handles are fastened on with pale blue, pearl brads that match the colour of the lining in the bag.
You can just see here that there is also a little pocket on the inside of the bag.
Can you make out the stitching on the handles?
It was really tricky getting them through my sewing machine, but well worth the effort.
