Feeling creative and a bit nervous

I made this mini messenger bag as a gift for one of my eldest sons friends from school. Usually I just go and buy things for school friends but things are a bit tight at the moment and I have lots of fabric and things available to use! I am a bit nervous about how it will go down as a gift though, it is the first time I have given a hand crafted item as a gift for a birthday.

It was made completely from stash items so I didn't have to buy anything. It has the same butterflies print as the lining and a simple divided pocket under the flap.

If I could have changed anything it would be the strap, I only had 1" webbing and I think it would have looked better with a wider strap.

I hope she likes it.

She'll love it! You are too critical of your own work, I'd love one!
