What's black & white & red all over?

My niece's new birdie sling!

She liked mine so much she wanted one of her own. We went together to pick her fabrics. Didn't she do a great job choosing? The black, red and white are so cute and fun.

The inside has more dots and more cherries, as well as a magnetic snap closure and a key loop. This was my second time with this pattern and it felt like I knew what I was doing this time -- everything was faster and easier.

We made a good crafting team, the two of us: I cut, she ironed, I sewed, she pressed. I think she loves her new bag. I hope she thinks of me when she uses it, too. :-)

It is so cute, isn't it? We went to the local quilt shop. But here's a link to the same fabric on etsy (for less than I paid!):
