On Your Bike!

Still got the sewing head on........... but I couldn't resist this fabric from Pink Chalk Fabrics, the colours are fab and the bikes are just too cute! I altered (now there's a shock!) the length of the handle because I like a bag that will go over the shoulder.

I wasn't too keen on the eyelet pockets........... until...........

I came up with the idea of making little felt dangles....... the felt just seemed to go with the linen fabric!

........ Of course I didn't just buy the bicycles......... I bought the glasses in green and the helicopters in grey!.......... projects number 647!
