Little Brown Nut...

hello today!
when my sister was very small
my dad used to call her his
little brown nut...
she was very cute...
short dark brown shiny hair
shining brown eyes
olive brown skin
when i was making this...
i found myself thinking of my sister
jill of velvetmoss
knew it was for her.

so this one
is not jane's market bag
it's jill's.
i'm sure she'd love a visit from you too!
i'm hoping you'll have a very special weekend with your family...
naturally Carol xox


  1. Oooh I love this bag pattern and all the different looks you've given it with different fabrics. Well done.

  2. Hello Carol:
    What a very sweet name for your sister as a young child. And, the bag is so pretty as well as practical.

  3. Haha! I had to laugh when I read this post. I havn't been called that in a while! I guess it would have to be 'big brown nut' and some how I don't think I'd like that :) Fabulous bag! Can't wait to see it in the flesh so to speak... :) Aren't I lucky to have a sister like you! sewing this for me brings back a memory. When you had just left school, you got in a sewing mood one time and made me three dresses. I came home from school one day and there they were. It was amazing! Have a lovely weekend! Love Jillxxx

  4. That is cute Carol...and another lovely bag too! I think your sis will love it. Will pop over to see her space, thanks for letting us know xo

  5. Hello Carol,
    Your bag is lovely...the design and the fabrics..I'm sure your sister will be delighted!
    Thank you so much for visiting me today...I'm trying to get a few visits in before I move to our very old computer for a few days!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend,
    Susan x
