Peg bags


Just realised I did not take a decent picture of the peg bags I made. Just love this fabric, so will make some shopping bags from it too.  I couldn't find wooden hangers at a decent price and I just think that it needs to be wooden, plastic is just not the same :)  Hanging your washing out is much more environmentally friendly than using a tumble dryer and this peg bag on your line will make you smile :)

Taken them to Hexton - Country Matters they have a facebook page also, pop down there for a piece of cake and a cup of tea, and wander around the shop with its eclectic mix of products.

Elephants and more

I bought some elephant fabric at Threads and Patches sale, I really didn't need any more fabric but couldn't resist these cute elephants - kind of wished I had bought more now....

left a few things on a basket at Country Matters in Hexton, did the other box as well, but the cute brooches are not mine that is another seller.


Thought it would be a nice idea to make a few different things in the same fabric, but ran out of ideas to make!  Zipped pouch for pretty much anything, needlecases, glasses case or phone case, along with some tissue pouches


With this fabric I did a different style case, so could use it for pens and also made some 'cornered' lavender bags, they did look sweet.  Same idea as the bean bag stands I made last year.

Bird



So I got the Fabi die out, and made this! Thought I would just sew him (or is it her) onto a bag instead of a flower.  Maybe I should have attached a ribbon in the back when I sewed it and then could hang it...but then would have to attach to the handle somehow.....decisions decisions

See the dies here:

Totes


Happy New Year

I have made a few shopping totes/bags, they are not huge, but are good to get a few things in, and I have also added a pocket with a snap fastening inside.

Sometimes when I pop into town I just like to take a shopping bag and pop my purse, keys and phone inside, and the pocket is big enough for them all.

I just thought this chicken fabric was fun, from MK market.

I decided to add straps that were ready made, makes them nice and strong and the fabric goes a little further, what do you think?  Dithered over how long to make them too!
