Happy Birthday Sis!!! We were as thick as thieves as children together and I hope your 30th is really fantastic. You deserve it.
I finished the bag today. It was so much faster than my first bag and I really love this one. The fabric is a Japanese cotton: Seven Berry Trees. My sister is a gardener and I worry each time I see her pulling out her mobile and keys from her pockets. This bag is the perfect size to fit purse, camera, mobile and keys. Plus a bit of room for snacks or small scarf.
I have taken pics of the method in this madness and I'll post it soon as a tutorial.
