My sweet niece

Yesterday we spent the afternoon in my sister's sunny backyard. Every year when my niece Janneke is having her birthday, there're plenty of first sunbeams. What a gift to let all the kids play outside and us lazy sitting in the garden!
My niece turned thirteen. In this age there's no more playing, but more hanging around. It's was quite hard for us to think of a nice present. So I sat down and started to sew. I changed this free pattern a bit, one of my saved tutorials on Pinterest. I'm quite satisfied with the result, especially how the striped piping detail turned out to be. Striped fabric is from Ikea. M+L added drawings they made for Janneke in the bag.

Wat zal ze ermee pronken! Zelf maken overstijgt toch elk uitpakgeluk! Plezier! Rozalinde

Die is zeker mooi! Hij ziet er ook lekker ruim uit. Ik ga eens rondneuzen op jouw pinterest. Ik ben er net mee gestart en heb het idee dat ik veel meer mee kan dan tot nu toe. Leuk!

I really like the striped piping. And I think a bag is a great present for a teenager. You always need bags for hanging around ;)

Da's een mooi tasje! Wat zijn zelfgemaakte cadeautjes toch leuk! Die piping doet het hem, he?

Love the colour combination/contrast you have used for the bag. Looking forward to investigating the rest of your blog now, glad I came across it!
