I recently whipped up a set of these little bags for a friend’s trio of daughters. What young girl doesn’t need another bag for toting a favourite stuffed friend, book or change of clothes for a sleepover, or set of gym clothes for school? And hopefully there are a lot of little girls out there who can find a likeness of themselves in the main fabrics of my Quiet Time collection, so they feel they have an item personalized just for them.

I co-ordinated different colourways of Floating Blossoms to use as the lining for each one.
