Remember the sneek peeks from last post??? They were her gifts!! The Paddington Satchel by Moonshine Designs. I used the Cotton Blossoms range of fabrics (outer and lining) and thought it would be the perfect choice for Mother's Day being a 'Mother & Daughter' range of fabrics!!
Funny thing, I had started making this bag and had nearly finished when I was chatting to Mum on the phone. We were talking about my Cotton Blossom quilt I recently made and she had commented that she loved the teal colour! I knew then that I had chosen well!! I teamed the teal with the burgundy tone on tone for the piping. And, I just *love* this buckle!! It matches perfectly (I must get another for the Paddington Satchel I want to make myself - the smaller one).
And, as a little extra gift, I decided to make her one of her initial luggage tags - 'G' for Gail:
And, to my good friend Lynda, I hope you have had a beautiful Birthday as well as Mother's Day xx
