Messenger Bag reveal and a Birthday

I can now show you the rest of the messenger bag from my last post.  So here it is!
It was my daughter's birthday on the weekend and this bag I made for her.  She LOVES horses and so I changed the stitchery on the front to be two horses instead of the balancing elephants from the original design.  My daughter just loved it. 
I also made her this Mouse in a Matchbox which is designed by Simone Gooding of 'May Blossom'.
Its' a very cute little design and I just love making little things.

My daughter wanted a horse cake for her birthday - so we looked through a few pictures and ideas on the internet together and decided on a green paddock cake with horse figures and a fence on top.  So here is the finished cake and here she is too - cutting the cake.
We decided that we didn't want balloons to decorate and so I found this great tutorial HERE to make tissue paper pom pom decorations.  I ended up making six of these pom poms and I think they came up really well.  I will definately be making them again for other birthdays and celebrations.
A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little girl (who is not so little any more!)  We had a lovely day all together celebrating her birthday. 
Until next time - happy sewing!
