Birthday Love Stash, and Wendy's giveaway

It is nearly the end of the month and time to show my one and only finish for the Birthday Love Stash.
I finished off a UFO, making this bag for my daughter for her birthday.  I gave it to her tonight so I can now show it.  Of course that means it didnt stay in the Stash for very long.



This bag is made using Dawn's Baseco Bag pattern.  I changed the embroidery to suit my daughter.  I also added lots of pockets.

Wendy encourages us to add to our birthday love stash each month so we are prepared for those birthdays that sneak up on us - well that is the plan, but sometimes I am still running behind.

Go check out all about it on Wendy's blog, and while there, check out the giveaway she is having to commemorate having her first pattern available on Craftsy.  It is such a gorgeous pattern, I am sure you will love it and want to enter the giveaway.

Wow Marilyn it's such a gorgeous bag, & don't worry if it wasn't in the Stash for long, some of mine never even make it that far but I still say it's for the Stash!

What a wonderful gift. My daughter would also love that bird. I am trying to use enough of my stash to get into my sewing room, but that bag is really tempting.
