Seaside applique bag for lifeThis is a reusable bag that I made for a friends Birthday. I needed a small gift that I could send home as I am making her wait for her main present until she comes to visit.  She’s a fellow Cornish girl so has an inherent love of the sea and all things coastal and nautical.

I had lots of bluish-coloured scraps of fabric left over from various other projects so waves seemed like the logical pattern to use. I lined the bag to make it a little stronger and cover up the stitching at the back of the applique. Obviously the bag didn’t need an actual pattern so I just took the dimensions from one of my own bags.

Now she only has to wait a few more weeks for her main gift…
