Half Year Birthday

Tessa sitting up all by herself for the first time, she has good timing because she did it on her half year birthday. You are a very sweet and special girl my beautiful daughter Tessa. May all your dreams come true. We had a few friends over to celebrate which was fun and Tessa loved all the different faces.

Here is the bag I made from Amy Butler's amazing craft book Little Stitches for Little Ones that I wrote about in the last post. It's called the Everything Bag I guess because of the obvious that it has so many pockets and is a great size to carry all the baby essentials.

It was made with a lovely light denim with grey, pink and white stripes. Which is very effective and one of my favourite colour combinations so cute for little girls too. The lining is a sweet little nursery themed print with rocking horses, rattles and teddy bears in a pale pink stripe. The pattern didn't call for bias binding along the top edge but I think it just finishes the bag quite nicely.


  1. that is just so sweet!

    i bet you'll use that one with pride!

  2. What a stylish baby bag!! Love all the pockets and the stripey fabric.
