A little sewing

Last weekend, while I was sick, one of my best friends got married. Needless to say, I couldn't go to her wedding, but I also couldn't bear not to see her get married. So we went to give our gift, and to say congratulations.
I had made her the bag in the top photo, and we filled it with presents.

My friend had made all the decorations herself, not traditional, but really pretty. These are our seats.
We stayed for a little while, saw the beautiful ceremony and gave them our present. Then back home -luckily the party was just two blocks away! I was so tired, pain-killers only get you so far :)

We are also getting ready for fall, Miss V needed new slippers for her daycare. We went to lots of different stores, she tried on lots of different slippers, but nooooo...
Until she saw these
She loves them, which gives me hope she will actually wear them and avoid getting too many colds this winter!

I also made her this bag to hold her change of clothes, her slippers, her rainclothes, hat, mittens etc.
V chose the fabrics ;)
I used the Jane Market Bag pattern. It was really easy to make. I think this will make an exellent project for Christmas presents!

Oh I hope you are feeling better! Those are events you really do hate to miss! Great slippers and bag. Miss V will love them.

I'm sorry you missed your friend's wedding. I'm sure she understood and appreciated the effort you made to help make the day special for her. Love the rainbow fabric on her bag. Lovely job on the bag for your daughter.

Get well soon.

Beautiful bags, Tine! Not too surprising that Miss V chose purple, and I, too, love her slippers. What a bummer to miss your friend's wedding - but I'm glad you got to go for the ceremony and take her gift. I'm sure she loves it!
