Phoebe Bags for all!

2016-02-15 20.03.40I always have the aim of finishing all Christmas present making (or buying!) by the 31st of October: It allows me to relax whilst everyone around me panic-buys!

Last year, I make a lot of my friends the Phoebe Bag  from the Craftsy website.  Not only is this a lovely bag pattern, but it is FREE to download!!

I also added a clip for keys on the inside!IMG-20151115-WA0003

My friends LOVE their bags!
