Moshling bag

The moshlings have jumped up and bit me again - I was coerced by baby bambi-eyes into making a bag to hold his moshling figures in. He was extremely specific about the details; went through the plain colours to find the right purple, drew me a picture of the shape, picked out the lining material and measured the length of the strap using a tape measure on his arm. He insisted on round, which is damned difficult to get looking good, but he doesn't seem to mind that the seams are a bit puckered. And that the lining is slightly bigger than the outside :)

The most time-consuming bit was appliqueing Iggy on the bottom of the bag. Those eyes have five different pieces!!! It's raw-edge, so a bit rough, but it does look recognisably like the moshling Iggy, if I do say so myself. Iggy is Ultra-Rare. Wow. By the way, I have no idea why this paragraph is underlined, and I can't seem to remove it.

Now I have to decide if I let him take the bag, with figures, to school. I know it will end in disaster, but can I resist the bambi-eyes?
