A Frilly Little Secret :)

There is always a certain element of danger in making a gift for someone, especially when the recipient knows what you are planning to make for her.

There's the danger that it won't turn out (and that it will be abandoned into the UFO pile forever)...

or that you'll run out of something vital and can't finish it...

or the most common danger of all...


...that you'll love it so much that you can't bear to give it away :)

I've had this Frilly Dilly bag planned in my head for so long...the fabrics have been in my possession for ages....and with my best friends birthday coming up, I knew it would be the perfect gift for her (she has a major bag obsession LOL).

I just hadn't counted on how lovely the Amy Butler LOVE fabrics would look together...or how hard it would be to gift-wrap it...sigh.

I know, I know... I could make myself one. But then we would be matching, which might just be a bit uncool.

My youngest thought it looked pretty special on her, too :)
Maybe I'll have to be content with making a journal cover out of the scraps...LOL
TTFN xxx
P.S. Love you Fi...are you sure you wouldn't prefer a blue bag? xxx

No wonder you can't bear to part with it!! Your friend is going to adore it. The Love fabric looks amazing with the brown background.
