Oh-So-Musical bag for Jayne

 A commissioned project for my lovely colleague Jayne Diack,who asked for a bag to carry her flute and music folder. She chose the Oh-So-Happy pattern from a previous bag and asked for music notes on the front. Happy to oblige!!

I quilted some score lines on the front panel and machine blanket-stitched the motifs. Handles and lining are lime green. 

And tried out some machine embroidery on the inner pocket, which gives a little thrill when you look inside and see it!

A shame I don't have any musical instruments or score sheets here at home for the photo...Kieran's electric drum kit just didn't have the same ambience as this old gate!

And just for fun, here is the bag that inspired this one...
