Sheep Bag

Yesterday was another of our sporadic Houston buddies sewing days and we were joined by another lady who is coming to Ireland with us next week (the Irish Quilt Festival). I had a very productive day making this cute bag, I just needed to put the button on when I got home. I bought the sheep fabric when we were on holiday in Brecon last year and have been wanting to make a bag from it for ages. I bought the black fabric on ebay and the button is a self-covered one. I used Pellon 987 fusible fleece as wadding and there's very little quilting on it, I didn't want to detract from the fabric design.  I used the Bow Tucks pattern, but left off the front pocket, again because I didn't want to take away from the cute sheep fabric.  If I made it again I would try to position the sheep a bit better, one has ended up with the button on her face!
