I thought I would take a short break from all my sightseeing news to show you the toy bag I just finished.

You might remember that I was working on this a long time ago. Well, in my highly motivated state this week I finally got it finished!

I am pretty happy with how it turned out and am looking forward to using it for visits to 'Baba-Anne's' (Grandma's) and when we catch up with friends and having it filled up with plenty of entertainment for Yashar.

The fabric I used is made by Cosmo Textiles. They have quite a few cute fabric designs, but the site is mostly in Japanese so a little hard to navigate.

I also lined the bag with some cute blue patterned vintage fabric and used some interfacing in between the pieces of fabric so that it was nice and thick and sturdy.

Anyway, it took a while but the timing turned out to be just right for summer with that big dripping

Your bag is quite a masterpiece and you must be delighted to have it completed as I am sure your little boy takes up so much of your time. I have many projects waiting to be completed so this will spur me on.
Is fabric shopping in Istanbul easy?

Thank you! Actually fabric shopping here isn't as easy as you would think. Most of the local fabric stores have a pretty limited selection. I am going to try to visit the fabric area of Istanbul again soon so will get back to you after that!
