Birthday Girl

'Simone and the daisies' Tote

It is a very dear friend's birthday today and I made her this tote as part of her present.
I wanted it to be special so I made up a pattern for a new shape and tried to think of something different to decorate it along with a scribbled girl...

I must admit that I am so enchanted with the shape.
Its a lovely balloon bag with pleats, a full-belly and rounded corners.
The girl was placed in the corner and surrounded by a scattering of cream and black stitched flowers, with a tiny bloom in her hair.

I hope she likes it as much as I do. 

Happy Birthday!
