(You may notice this fabric from other projects. I made Jazz's bag and also have an animal skin waiting to be stuffed, made from this bright Ikea print. Its just perfect for children.)
So for the next bag, I'm making a pirate logo and using a much stiffer cotton drill. Heavy weight and hopefully able to withstand a lot more handling. Because boys are rough, right? The Applique is finished but Ive still got a lot of piping and binding to do- boooooooooo. It has to look good inside and out. I'm too much of a perfectionist. (Well I strive, I never reach it.)
Above is the flat fabric with stitched down circular straps. Below is the completed Applique. Still unsure if its a bit 'naff' or not. Cant quite get into the mind of a 5 year old boy. Will find out sooner or later as it must be finished in another day because we are meeting up.
