A little goodie bag



The stitched piece is a very old freebie kit which came from a British Cross Stitch magazine in the 1990s, stitched on 18 count aida. I was going to use it to make a birthday card by adding a fabric mount, but then I changed my mind, and thought about making a mini pillow. However, as I had planned to give it to my niece, I remembered about her obsession with bags, and made it into a little drawstring "dolly bag" into which I put her Easter bunny and a couple of little board books - as well as a tube of mini chocolate eggs. I'm not sure which she liked most - it's one of the rewarding things about giving gifts to my niece, she's so pleased with anything - but she insists that the bag is hung with mummy's bag on her pushchair ...
