party bags

Back to school tomorrow after two weeks of holidays. It's been nice and relaxing spending time with the kids and not running around trying to get from one place to another!
We had a first birthday party to go to on Saturday for our good friend Jamie and we packed his little present in a personalised canvas bag.

.....inside was a card with an elephant shape cut out, fabric glued underneath and an eye and ear stitched on with embroidery thread.

.....and the canvas bag with a circle appliqued on, woollen "j" stitched on top and red stitching around the edges. Happy Birthday Jamie!

Love your party bag idea - it looks so effective and stylish! Your Sue Spargo quilt is coming along really well.
