how i spent my sunday morning

while little bb was sleeping after his morning feeding,
i sat down to do something i have wanted to do many months ago.

seven months ago, when little bb was still inside my tummy,
i tried to make a padded drawstring bag for my polaroid.
it wasn't successful as the measurements i took turned out to be too small.

seven months later, i finally have the chance to try making another one again.

this time, i am more generous with the measurements. 
and it turned out to fit the polaroid well!

the black initial motif was from the lace center.  it is the only one i have.
i was reluctant to use it before, but i like the black + neutral color combination...
i got a good excuse to use it this time!

the ruffles are cut off from an old top and the different pieces of lace are collected over time.
some are new and some are vintage.  also stamped a nice french script on the bag which is now partly covered by the ruffles...  

and a little birdie charm is added to the motif.

by the time little bb woke up, the bag was done!
perfect timing!

and thank you my dear boy, for allowing me time to make something for myself!
