Sewing for birthday presents

I have had a lovely time making bags as gifts, one for my sister and another for a friend who both turn 50 today. My sister's bag is made from some Japanese fabric that I bought from Kimono House and to make it as strong as the black denim, I interfaced it twice. It was a great compliment when she asked where I bought it from. My friend's bag is made from a black and white fabric called 'stringy licorice' that I bought online from duckcloth. She is a Collingwood supporter and so it was a perfect match for her, especially as they won the AFL grandfinal. And so this bag will be a reminder of her 50th birthday and the premiership happening in the same year (it will be the Bulldogs turn next year!!)
