A polka dot vision...

This is what I have been frustratingly making this past week- a backpack for Brigi!!! Why so frustrating? Well it seems obvious now but coated cotton has no give and such a little bag with so many curves was difficult. So what makes this project unique?

Well, I'll tell you a little about my Mu. She has to go into hospital this week to have a tube inserted into her intestine for feeding... this means she has to carry a machine and milk around for 20hrs a day. So as a mum I figured she might as well look super cute-she deserves it...speaking of which, this is what Brigi will be doing when carrying milk- climbing furniture just to get her fave book at the moment!


I love you Brigi. I wish I could take your pain away.

gorgoeus Bec, I had a feeling you were going to make a bag with that fabric. Great idea for Brigi's bottles.
Hope it all goes ok xx
