Sewing lessons

A chance find yesterday of a library book with 'princess bags' in it suddenly led to a joint project between me and Hope to make her a very simple princess bag of her own.  This was her very first sewing project, and although she needed some help along the way, she was patient and keen and did a fair amount herself.

She chose the fabric from my box - an old dressing gown, some flowery print for the crown and her favourite white ribbon from the jar..... and hey presto

So, that was yesterdays project!!

I have cooked up a lovely Jamie Oliver recipe of spicy butternut squash soup, using up four of my mini squashes for tea, so I am off to enjoy that now.......


  1. Hi! I've popped over from Jan's blog - welcome to the Blogosphere!! I love your little princess bag although I think I love your little princess even more! Ooh - to clarify, I'm a Mum of a wee blonde girl myself and have a particular soft spot for them. Not a pedo, honest! God, what an introduction, eh... *grins*

  2. Congratulations on starting your own blog! I've come over from Jan's as well.

    Hope did a wonderful job on her Princess Bag - give her a "high five" from me!!

    I do love squash, but haven't yet tried to make soup from them yet. How did yours come out? I have the second half of a Spaghetti Squash in the fridge to cook. Found some quick microwave directions for it & "enhanced" a jar of marinara sauce to pour over the top. :D

  3. Just come over from Isisjem - welcome to Blogland! I love the look of intense concentration on your little girl's face - beautiful!
