I’ve been working on a special project. This one is special because I had someone near and dear to my heart in mind to receive it. My daughter is en route home at the moment to visit us for the weekend. A quick reprieve from her studies. I have made up a quick shoe bag for her to have something elegant to carry her footwear in.

The fabric is leftover from a tiered skirt we made for her many years ago. The bag is approximately 12″ wide by 17 ” long with a simple drawstring closure. I cut out a shoe appliqué to grace the front, applied it with HeatnBond Lite and zigzagged all around the outside of the shoe.

Here are a few close-ups of the bag.

You could make the bag without a shoe appliqué  and in various sizes and it would be useful for any number of things.  I hope you like the bag. It was simple and quick and makes a great gift.
