This one was for my MIL for Christmas. I really love this pattern - pleats and piping, how could you go wrong with that!
The fabric is Saffron Craig's Dandelion Circles (this fabric is very eco friendly and chlorine free) and the lining was one of the treasures I picked up at Stash Rehash. I made the piping and the covered buttons to match from some fabric I had in the stash. Because this was just a medium weight cotton it was all interfaced to give it a bit of oomph.
I would like to have added some o-rings on the straps but I have no idea where to buy them from in New Zealand (if anybody knows please drop me a line) and I didn't have time to order them from Aussie.
I do have some other handmade Christmas pressies still to show so I will load the photo's of these in the next couple of days. In the frenzied rush of getting everything done in time the blog has been a bit neglected but things are starting to get back to normal around here now so more time to blog now that preschool has started again.
