Our blogpost today is dedicated to OMA (my mother, and so the grandmother of our kids).
Happy birthday oma! I know that since early this morning you are expecting a phone call from your expat daughter. I know that by now you think I most have forgotten that it is the 2nd of February today –just like I did the last 10 years or so. I also know that your eldest granddaughter called you today, to congratulate you, because I was standing next to her –although she kept that hidden from you.
I kept you in suspense the whole day, but this year I did not forget your birthday! A present has been shipped to you, but it will not arrive in Belgium on time, so you can unwrap it here digitally.
The top side and a glimpse of the inside.
The front side.
It is a gift with handles.
It is … a fabric shopping bag.
Have fun and enjoy the last hours of your birthday!
Green fabric: Kona of Robert Kaufman bought @ Classic Quilts & Quilting.
Red flower fabric: I bought this ages ago in Parijs, in a shop very close by the Sacre Coeur.
Patroon: Zo Geknipt, the book that will be put in the cicular again, as there is that other book from which I urgently want to create some items.
