Calendar Girl


Sometimes really big crappy stuff happens, and even though you feel completely helpless, just something teeny tiny like making someone smile is enough.

Bianca had sent me a lovely calendar teatowel quite a few months ago now. One of her girlfriends bought it for her as a 30th birthday pressie.

It had been languishing on my cutting table ever since....


In a serendiptious moment at the oppy, I found this lovely green floral fabric which was a perfect match for the bag lining, and that spurred me into action.


I couldn't quite decide between green and orange straps (and I couldn't ruin the surprise by asking) so I decided to go with both!


While I was making it behind the scenes, I even sent out a few sneaky WIP photos on instagram.... but she still didn't notice.


But I can happily report that it most definitely made her smile!
