The Mandy Bag, awaiting its final coat of varnish.

The Mandy Bag, awaiting its final coat of varnish.

I promised Wendy an annual bag, and she chose ‘Mandy’, which was her favourite as a child. I tried to find one from the year of Wendy’s birth, but this was the closest I could get. Wends says she likes Mandy on her bike. I know that the red polka dot is a little loud for Wends, but it’s my current favourite fabric and I think it goes perfectly with the red title on the cover. The final coat of varnish is drying as I type, and the bag will be handed over to a friend this afternoon to be carted back to Cape Town and delivered to its new owner. Enjoy, Wends!
