Babushka Bag for a Yummy (soon to be) Mummy

August 28th 005

Rachel’s beloved teacher Mrs. K started her maternity leave this afternoon, (there were many tears in our house last night). They had a fabulous surprise class party today which Rachel helped organize. She also asked me to make something special for her special teacher (‘and make sure it has black & white in it, she LOVES black and white”) – this is what I came up with.

The bag pattern is an AMH Taxi Tote (from her book ‘Seams to Me’). The Babushka’s are a Melly and Me design – they were made for each other!

It also happened to be the 64th anniversary of Book Week – celebrated in schools throughout Australia. I, like many Mums this week, managed to pull something together for DS to wear.

James – AKA Zac Power

(complete with Spy Pad, made by DH!)

Both Katherine and Kylie will be at the Babies and Children’s Market (& car Boot Sale) at One Community Church tomorrow – Saturday 29th August from 9-2pm at 184 Surrey Road, Blackburn, VIC. Kylie and Katherine have been sewing up a storm, go along to see (& buy) some of their fabulous creations in the flesh.

With Love

Love the Babushka bag Janelle- very stylish for the Mum to Be!! "Zac Power" looks awesome in his costume. Sadly this was my last year of having to come up with a book week costume. Enjoy your weekend - and good luck to Katherine and Kylie at the markets.

Hey, Janelle, that bag is gorgeous! I love the babooshkas. We survived the market in one piece, and will do it again sometime. Go Zac Power!!
