Yesterday I received a fabulous gift that I won recently. A beautiful bag made by Ali - Very Berry Handmade - and it is even better in person than in photos. I've been following Ali's blog for about as long as I have been reading blogs. Not only does she make gorgeous things but she is a veritable font of knowledge about buying fabric and notions in the UK. And if you have a Liberty Fabric fetish then Ali is the person to go to on Folksy to get yourself a nice selection to increase your stash.
The bag Ali made is why I don't make bags. Because it is perfect and I doubt I could ever reach that level. Now I don't have to even try, because I own this one. Lucky me indeed!
If you are interested in knowing more about the gorgeous Gudrun fabrics Ali used then please go here and read her original post about the bag. Her photos are way better than mine too.
The bag has a magnetic closure on the flap, an inset zippy pocket inside, and a lovely deep pocket right across the outside. Ali also sent me that lovely notepad that you get a sneaky peek of in the outside pocket.
A huge thank you to Ali for being so generous as to give away such a beautiful make. I will love it, and beat off all people who try to take it. Just saying, because I am off to the seaside tomorrow to meet up with my Brit Bee friends.
