The King and I

Hello everyone

This is my second mother’s day present. This one is for Mikeee’s mum. I have made a bag with a lift top lid. It was quite difficult as I had to adapt the pattern to fit the candle he had. You may recognise the two Magnolia’s, as I had used them on a card that got ruined when I spilled superglue all over the table! As I do not like to waste anything, I quickly pulled off the images before they got any glue on them. The table was a terrible mess though and there are still bumps of glue everywhere. Anyway as you can see Mikeee does not like the Magnolia’s because they have no mouths, but wanted me to use the king as he thought it looked like him. When I was out of the room he got a pen and drew a mouth and nose on him. We did laugh he looks so cute and nothing like Mikeee at all. What do you think?
