Crazy Canuck Bag

Our good friend Selena is leaving us to go back to Australia for a few months. She has to sort out her Visa and passport and then she'll come back to Canada (where she belongs!)

In the meantime, we'll have to make sure our friend Doug doesn't turn into a hermit while his lovely Selena is away. If any of you know him, you'll know that this isn't an easy task. He's been slowly turning into a hermit for years. The only person who brings him out is Selena. So hurry back girl!

Not forsaking any chance to sew, I made Selena a pretty Crazy Canuck bag to take with her. I was going to fill it with all sorts of cliche Canada things like Timmies coffee and back bacon, but decided that she'd probably not make it that far onto the plane with a chuck of bacon in her bag hehehe.

She can place all the things that she needs to bring back to Canada (including a real boomerang for Terry) in this bag and always have a reminder of her crazy Canuck friends.

Like the maple leaf applique? It's a bit larger than I had realized!

The straps and lining are Canadian as well. Very nice.


I'm sharing this project with some lovely sewist/crafters on the ole interweb:

Very cute, fellow Canuck! I am actually planning a Canadian-themed giveaway on my blog soon, with goodies in a bag :-)
