Note from Alanda Craft: This is Marieke’s first bag and I think it looks great. I’m a big fan of Dr Seuss, and his books were a favourite with my kids. The Cat in the Hat was undoubtedly a much loved and well read book in our household. So I really like the ‘Cat in the Hat’ cross stitched badge on the front of the bag. It just goes to show how innovative our readers are. She made her bag from our tea towel tutorial, which is a great way to use up those lovely tea towels or dish cloths that you have on hand. Thank you so much for sharing your bag with us Marieke, I bet it was popular at your craft swap.
I am so proud of the first bag I ever made on my sewing machine. It was made for a craft swap, so I first cross stitched the cat in the hat and ironed it on one of the tea towels I used to make this bag. Thank you a thousand times for the very lovely tutorial!
