Nanny strikes again.....and in her own words!!

My lovely mum has been making some gorgeous stuff of late and I have been busting to share this particular project, but as the gift was only given last weekend, I thought it best to wait just on the offchance that the recipient might pop in and have a read of my blog, which I happen to know she has done before.... (*waving* Lucy!!) So..............without further ado, here is my mum's beautiful ensemble in her own words!!

"I wanted to make a little gift bag to put my Niece's birthday present in.  I had seen various examples of bags while browsing various sites (as you do), but I found a tutorial for this one on Cambria Turnbow's  blog.

 I had such fun making  this and I was quite happy with the result. I also made the card to match, the design of which I found on Marelle Taylor's blog"
