So the block was made. The child was happy. But the mother was not. A stray orphan unicorn block floating about the sewing nook.. it’s just not on. So it was time to do something to remedy the situation. So a bag was made!
Similarly to the unicorn block sewing scenario, the making of this bag was closely supervised. Just in case I decided to do something weird with it – like you know, not make it pink.
I hope you can imagine the audio that goes with the above photo. It sounds like “Is it done yet? Now? Mummy, is my bag done? Mummy? Mummy, mummy is it finished? Now? Now is it done? Mummy? Mummy? Answer me Mummy!”. And so on and so forth. Thank goodness that the bag was a quick make. I’m not sure my nerves would have taken much more. It’s pretty much just like the “Are we there yet?” game. But not so fun.
So pink border, pink backing, pink straps. The inside is pink toned but not entirely pink. It does however feature a cute squirrel on a mushroom. Nearly as good as a unicorn. I had planned unicorn fabric inside but.. my stash ate it. Fortunately Little Miss doesn’t care so long as the unicorn is on the front.
I’m pretty sure Little Miss is happy with the bag. Considering she took off with it before I had time to take photos, fell asleep cuddling it, and insisted it come shopping with us yesterday. Complete with a toy unicorn inside.
So at long last.. a conclusion to the tale of the pink unicorn – and it ends like this:
And they all lived happily ever after.
(Well until the unicorn phase is over and something else replaces it, then we’re right back to the drawing board all over again. Fingers crossed I have a few months before then at least. If you have a unicorn obsessed kidlet, you can find the pattern in my Craftsy shop )
Your turn! What paper piecing mischief have you been up to this week?
