OK. I had the present.
The pin cushion on the right for the very talented Mama K.
But I felt quite crafty this Sunday morning, too. To make something new out of something comparably old (how old can you call fabric from the 80s?). A hippie bag (more 60s probably). First seen on soulemama's blog here.
It is the Big Easy Sling bag from Sew What You Love.
Now I could go, children in tow/sling. So big that the following things fit inside: birthday present, keys, camera, purse, cellphone, umbrella, 3 cloth diapers, 2 cloth diaper covers, 3 training paints, 2 baby shirts, 1 pair of baby pants, 1 pair of BabyLegs, baby socks. And there was still more room in it - it must be a Mary Poppins bag!
What did I use in 3 hours? One diaper.
And then I asked the birthday girl to take a picture of hippie me against the backdrop of her beautiful sitting room.
