The Very Hungry Caterpillar saga - Part 2 - Darci

Back in September, I wrote a post about a Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt, which I made for an expected great-niece but which went to another little girl instead. At the time I thought that a VHC quilt might not even fit in with the new baby's nursery decor but a photo my son posted on Facebook soon revealed that they really, really wanted a VHC quilt for their baby. And Darci is now the owner of her very own VHC quilt.

She's even wearing a VHC onesie to complete the picture.

Messenger bag

Six months ago, I did a bag-making workshop with Nicole Mallalieu. Nicole is a very good teacher and I learned a lot of hints and tips to improve the finish of my bags. However, I didn't quite finish the bag on the day and it has been languishing in my craft room. With my pre-Christmas sewing fest out of the way, I pulled out the bag and finally finished it.
