By the time you read this post, I’ll be getting ready to leave the UK and head to South Africa. My sister is speaking in Johannesburg and asked if I wanted to go with her. It took me about 10 seconds to say, “yes.”
We are stopping in England on the way to visit some cousins of my mothers and I thought I should make some “Canadian” gifts to take with me. I had a few bits and pieces left-over from my Canadian Quilt of Valour and so it lead very nicely to these bags.
The maple leaves were cut at the same time that I cut the big one for the Quilt of Valour. The bottom right white one is the trimming of one of the leaves. The red & white bags are all made with Island Batik fabrics (except for the lining) and the “O Canada” bag is made from my stash. The smallest bag is 5″ x 7½” and the largest is 7½” x 8 ¼”.
