Haven't been on here for a few days because Friday was my birthday, followed on Saturday by Daisy's 7th birthday - (Yep, she was a belated 30th birthday present for me!). We had a great weekend celebrating with her roller-disco party on Saturday afternoon, and a celebratory trip to Hobbycraft on Sunday to spend the money both me and Daisy had been gifted.
I have however been busy crafting in the odd quiet moments. Amongst other things I've made these two bags to put in my online shop:
The first one is made using some gorgeous fabric I got from Sewciety. Here is a slightly closer view of the fabrics:
I've used the pattern from Homespun Threads that I used before (see here), and this time have also added a pocket at the front. Again I've lined it with white cotton, and used a magnetic catch to fasten it.
The second bag is made from felt which I again bought from Sewciety.
I've used needle felting plus a bit of sewing to put the bag together. I am completely in love with the felted blanket pieces that Elisabeth sells, they're just so lovely to work with.
