Yesterday I popped into Shenleigh's for a coffee
and to make this bag with a piece of fabric that just arrived from Brenda,
it's lined with left-over quilt batting and some flannellette.
Just look at this fabric! How cute it is.
I'm not really a cat fabric fan like some, but this one is perfection.
While I was packing the house,
I kept my eye open for Annie's Mog books, her wee collection scattered
far and wide through out the house!
I like to put books together like this in an easy to find bag,
we still have the Goldilocks basket I made and Annie uses it all the time.
Mog books by Judith Kerr and filled with delightful drawings
And really lovely, easy to read stories for little ones.
I'm not a fan of reading picture books to be honest,
but these ones feel like real stories about a real family
and that I do like.
Look at that, look at the clothes
and the knobbly knees on the girl,
and the expression on Mog's face - perfection!
So now they are all safe in one place
and I plan on knitting this cat to pop in the bag.
I think done in grey stripes, it will look just like Mog!!
We will have to re-read the stories and see if there are some other props
to make and put in the bag too.
Annie LOVES telling her own stories.
