a pink girly post

You may be rather surprised to see the pink Hello Kitty fabric in the pictures below.  Let me assure you that I had to buy it specially for a request I had!



I had an email from a teacher at a local school who'd found my blog post on Wiggly Bags.  She told me that one of her pupils, a 5-year old girl, was in need of a Wiggly Bag and loved pink and Hello Kitty, she asked if I could help.  Of course I would.



I made three of the wiggly bags as I assume they will need washing.  I used some satin ribbon and some grossgrain ribbon from my sash.



I then made a matching zipper pouch to put them in, of course she can use it for whatever she likes.



I even did a reasonable job on the ends of the zipper!  I lined it with a cute strawberry print I'd picked up at Harrogate.



It broke my heart making these.  I really wish there was no need for me to make them but as long as there is a need, I'll carry on.  That reminds me, I must get in touch with the local hospital to see if they have a need for them.

I've not heard of wiggly bags before, but I've gone through the links now. Do you send them to your local hospital? Did you follow a pattern? If so can you send it through for me please? x
