Little Jilly Bag!

hi there!
i was thinking of all those who've entered my giveaway yesterday
who have more than one little girl needing a bag...
so i set out to make another one just in case it's needed
it could be second prize.
weeeell a funny thing happened...
catastrophic at the time really.
i was busy cutting out the red spotty lining
then cut out the little squares at the bottom edges so that it has a base...
oh, no!
i realised i'd cut them out at the top not the bottom...aaarrrahagggg!
but then not only did i make one mistake...hehe
but another..
i was measuring the amount needing to be taken off the other side of the bag
i took off a full half inch more on that side.
well i evened it up...
it became shorter,
but sweeter i think!
talk about making strawberry jam out of squished strawberries..hehe!
i've also made the front pocket wider...
so i thought it needed a completely new name
so it's my "little jilly bag".
if you want to enter the giveaway...
just comment on the previous post.
it's still going 'til sunday night.
naturally Carol xox t took this gorgeous photo for can see the budding jacaranda tree and a brewing storm in the background.
