You see, and here's something about myself you don't know - I'm a bit of a creature of routine when it comes to my breakfast. I bring it with me every work day, probably because I'm always so rushed (read "unorganised") in the morning that I never manage the time to have it at home. And my packed brekkie is almost always the same thing, a jam sandwich and a juice box, and sometimes, if I'm feeling healthy, there'll be a fruit.
So anyway, I have a little lunch bag which I use to haul my breakfast goods. I can't even remember where I got it from, but since its got a print in the front that reads "Welcome, Thank You", I'm thinking it must have been a goody bag from a get together of some sort, a wedding perhaps?
And here it is, but as you can see, one of the straps have gone.
That meant I needed to make a new one - yeppee! - any excuse to sew, hey?
So out came some charm squares - happy happy! - volunteering for the job.
These are from Moda's 'Spirit' - I'm wondering how many of them I've actually got, Spirit charms seem to jump up at me every so often.
The construction was simple. I merely copied the dimensions of the old lunch bag. All in all I used up, let's see, 1, 2 ... 14... 17, I used up 17 charms for the new bag, so I suppose there'll be a fair amount of Spirit charms left to jump up on me every so often again.
Now for the fun part - photos!
