Tote for a Tot!

By Judith

My friend gave birth to a gorgeous girl last December, and to help little one celebrate her special 1st birthday, I've made her a tote bag to carry dolly around in! 

A girl can never have too many bags, and it's never too young to start, right?

Natasha's 1st Birthday Tote bag

I acquired a Sizzix Big Shot a few months back, and decided that hubby really wanted to buy me a few more dies for it for Christmas!! One being the 1" Hexie die.  (Yes I opened my Christmas present the moment it arrived! Naughty!)

I ironed bondaweb onto the back of some pink and blue fabric scraps before whizzing them through the Big Shot like a magic whizzy thing!

I then ironed the hexies onto some linen and satin stitched them securely, so no amount of dragging around the floor will unhinge them! 

I went for a practical denim bottom too on this tote, and as the family have recently got a puppy, I thought Aneela's playful pups for the lining was perfect.

And at the last minute, I discovered that cute wee teddy in my ribbons box.  Perfect!

So dolly is now snug and secure, at least until some tiny hands starting flinging her around! I hope teddy's head doesn't get chewed off (by baby or the puppy!).
