Sew-a-long-a-Lesley

Well here it is the little Easter project that I promised you.

 

Do you like it? It’s quite cute isn’t it. I made it as an Easter Egg Hunt bag. But it could just be a bag for a little girl for any occasion.

We always have an Easter Egg Hunt in our house every year. I hide the eggs all around the house whilst everyone is in bed. When they get up they are each given a bag and wait for the ‘Go!’ command. They all then frantically scurry around the house searching for the eggs, often knocking each other over in the panic to find the most eggs. We are a VERY competitive family! Oh, and I should point out that we don’t have any ‘young’ members in our family. My kids are in their 30’s!!!! And their other halves and my hubby join in too. Yes, believe me it is a sight to behold and we have a really fun time. However, I cannot see the men in my household rushing around clasping this Easter Egg Hunt bag. I think it’s a bit girlie for them. So, I will have to save it for the grandkids, which I hope my kids may produce in the very near future.

So, back to the sewing. I thought you might like to Sew-a-long-a-Lesley next week and make an Easter Egg hunt bag for yourself. This is how I plan to do it…….

On Monday (4th February) I will give you the pattern and instructions for the little appliquéd bunny.

On Wednesday (6th February) I will give you the instructions for sewing the bag and lining.

On Friday (8th February) I will give you the instructions for sewing the handle and putting it all together.

And if you Sewalong with me you will have it ready well in time for Easter.

What do you think? Do you fancy joining me?

If you would like to join in with my little Easter SewAlong then just let me know in the comments below. It would be nice to see how many of you are joining in the fun. If you have a blog leave your blog address too and I will make a list (with a link to your site) on the Sewhappy website of all the Blog Participants. You might like to add a post and pictures to your blog so that we can all see your progress with a link back to the SewHappy website so that others can join in too.

Hope you decide to Sew-a-long-a-me. See you next Monday.
