51 Days until Christmas

I have just completed the first of my handmade Christmas gifts.  It's a drawing bag for my niece Ellie!
You don't want to know how long it took me to get the eyes in just the right spot so that the panda looked neither angry, nor stupid.

I never think to take photos when I'm putting the face together for some reason.  I only ever seem to do it after I have pinned it to the bag front.  

Hopefully her name doesn't fall off.  The directions on my fusible webbing say that you don't have to sew it as well, and it would have been on the fiddly side with the letters I used so I didn't do it. 

Admittedly it's the first time I have bothered to read the instructions, usually I just use it.. so I hope I don't regret following them this time!
The bag is lined with some Ikea fabric.  I thought it looked pretty spiffy with the panda!
