There is not much sewing going on here. Having the pleasure of the kids' company for 1440 minutes of each day, keeping them occupied and amused and un-injured for 845 of them and having one sleep on my head for another 300 has left me with no time and negative energy. But it's my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's birthday today and ergo I pulled out some fabric and my machine last night to make her a birthday present. This is Jennifer:
If we were all characters on True Blood (as we by rights should be), she'd definitely be supernatural because it's just not normal to be this pretty. Maia would also like her to be her real mum because she is kinder than me. She travels a lot for her job and sleeps in hotels without a child on her head, but I don't begrudge her enough not to make her a travelling bag.
It is very big indeed, perhaps too big because it is Slouchy (note capital S) when not filled.
I lined it with a bright turquoise fabric which I love against the lime green zipper.
It has a flat base so when it is filled with tequila and books and money (as people without children are free to do) it should stand up well. Happy birthday, Jennifer!
