If you're a blogger do you have projects that you make and forget to share? I've recently discovered quite a few from last year so it's time to air them publicly - here goes!!!
Today I'm sharing a bag collection I made for my Mum and posted over to her last Christmas. She enjoyed a very handmade Christmas as I also sent her this full collection of goodies for her kitchen - and given that I remembered to blog about these earlier in the year you can read more about them here.
Anyway, back to the bag collection - of course it had to be purple, Mum loves purple, do you remember the purple flower cowl I knitted for her for Mother's Day?
I started with a cosmetic bag...
...and matching tissue cover.
Then I added a lingerie bag - totally necessary for all her trips and holidays and Mum goes on a lot of trips and holidays!!!
And finally a matching tote

and the whole collection together
Mum joined us recently in Seville, as eager as we were to meet Oliver - the latest addition to our family. I was delighted when I spotted the travel bags in her hotel room, isn't it a fab feeling when you see something you've made being used and appreciated?
Have you ever spotted someone using something you've made?
