Some sewing for Maggie


It is quite a while since I have done any sewing and my daughter asked me if I would like to make a library bag for my granddaughter.  I was delighted to say yes as I had made a library bag for her older brother.

I used up scraps I had at home and I thought I had used fabric that Maggie’s mum had given to me but I discovered that it was fabric that Maggie’s aunt had given me.  The bag certainly now has a family link.  I hope she likes it.

    Such a great idea! Library books are so heavy and having something this beautiful to carry them in should make Maggie very happy! I love her name – same as my kitty! (Don’t tell her that!)

      She was named after my sister who was Margaret but we called her Megsy.

  3. What an excellent idea, a library bag, and to have such a personalised snazzy one would be delightful.

      At school in Australia the kids are required to take a library bag for when they borrow books from the school library, is it the same in Scotland?

      1. I see, I’ve never heard of such a thing here but it sounds like a good idea.

  4. Loved the bag, and the family connection with the fabric… made me think… in the UK recently shops have ALL stopped giving carrier bags, so I am going to make your library bags for my grocery’s … THANK YOU! Good to see you back blogging, must start mine again! Jay x

      Thanks for your comment Jay. I finally seem to have managed to get a few posts done rather than just the occasional one.
