Birthday Gift

One of the secret squirrel projects I was working on was a Birthday gift for my lovey friend Kristy! Kristy WAS a quilter/crafter, but just has lost her mojo for quite some time now. I got thinking of what to make her.... Being a lover of books, and reads in her lunch hour, I decided to make Marg Low's For The Book Lover. A great little bag/pouch to stick her book in and take to work:

I really love the stitchery on the flap:



I decided on a red and pink theme:



And it fits a box of chocolates in nicely too!




And, this little beauty is big enough to put your iPad in too! I am going to have to make myself one too! I really enjoyed making it up! lol


I have now traced off a heap of other things to keep me occupied at night (and work lunch times!).... Some 'me' things and some 'secret' things! Might show you later :=)
