Blue Clouds

Links to this project
I find the clouds on the Happy Girl Bag I made too plain and decided to paint it. Now the bag looks more complete.

Happy Girl Bag

Links to this project
A full-lined bag with zipper for my daughter to carry her Chinese enrichment books as the bag provided by the school is too big and clumsy for her.

The flowers on the front are iron-on felt. I sewed a red fabric button as the sun. The sun-rays and the clouds were sewed on as well. (I coloured the clouds the next morning after I post this.) The girl's face and hair were sewed before I made it into a button. After which I pleated her hair. Her arms and legs are sewed on too. I sew a name-tag to the back of the bag.
