It Looks Like a Lolly

Well, that's what John said when I showed him the first of these bags I made yesterday


which was great because the pattern is called "BonBon" by Monica Poole - and they do look just like the BonBon lollies.  I've made them as knitting bags:  one for my friend Sharon as a present for her birthday next week and the other is for Mum for Mothers' Day.  Late last year I bought some Matilda's Own Bag Batting to use when making Melly & Me's Sleepover Bag (still not finished) and used it in these bags instead of the recommended pellon - it's fantastic and holds the shape beautifully.  Monica Poole designs are so well written and easy to follow.  Thanks for the idea Vicki.

PS - I found the missing buttons.

Love your bon bon bags Lynda. They are really lovely. Great fabrics. I've made many a Monica Poole bag and I agree they have superb instructions. xx

Lynda your bags look beautiful and just perfect for knitting bags. I am sure your MIL and friend will love them. You are very organised having a Mother's Day present made already.
