a birthday present

Helen's birthday is only in two weeks but to my own surprise I already managed to finish her present- a small bag where she can put her stuff for the day-care. It was the first time I did such a bag and there are a few minor things I would change next time- but I am happy with the result. The outer fabric is from an old cushion cover, the lining is from new fabric. The pattern I made (as almost always) myself.

I made the bias tape myself- also my first try. I used this tutorial and it is much easier than I though! Try it!
The inside of the bag- with another elephant and Helen's name.

I am at home- not only feeling sick because of the pregnancy but now also with a cold... so most of the day I am lying on the sofa, drinking tea...
