its all about bags

This bag was ordered through my facebook shop, by a lovely lady who loves bags! She gave me a list of fabrics that she loved and left me to come up with how to use them, this is the finished product. The three flowers were made from berry ta dot, gothic flower and candy ta dot, I love how they all went so nicely together.

I used the gothic flower for the inside flap and front pockets and candy ta dot for the inside pockets. I can't get enough of gothic flower, I will cry when they decide not to print it anymore.

A bag for me

this was meant to be for my store, but once it was made up I fell in love, this fabric is so beautiful that I couldn't help myself. I'm loving making these messenger bags, the pattern I designed is super quick and easy to make up and I have so many ideas you will be seeing alot of them.

I'd love to use this fabric and make the bag out of brown cord instead of denim, it would look awesome! Now to find the perfect brown cord, it will have to match the colour perfectly.

In a few days I will be able to post a custom order that was sent off last week, the lucky recipient doesn't want to see it before it arrives, so I better not put it here just incase she reads my blog!

An Apple A Day

On Saturday I decided to spend the day sewing something different, I've had so many orders since opening my facebook store that I just needed a change, on Friday I had a stack of beautiful fabrics arrive from Above All Fabric and I was dying to use some of it, this is what I come up with, you can find it here in my facebook store or here in my made it store..

I have so much fun making these bags that I'm going to do a whole range of them eventually.

Mothers Day Fun

Jack, Zoe & I spent the afternoon doing a canvas for our wall. They have been asking for ages for me to paint with them and I thought it would be a lovely way to spend Mothers Day.

They both decided they wanted to draw our home and family so that's what they did! The only thing I did were the trees, the rest is their master piece :)

Now we just have to get Dad to hang it on the wall for us, they are so proud of their work.
And this is the knitting bag I made my Mum.
Happy Mothers Day Mum

A few weeks ago I went to the most gorgeous little town in Northern NSW called Bangalow, I fell in love instantly and cannot wait to go back there oneday, it's only 10minutes inland from Byron Bay and has great little shops to potter around in all day.

One particular shop had this timber box in it, I picked it up, opened the lid, touched the wood, smelt the timber, it has the most beautiful smell, that was it I HAD to have it, although it was completely out of my budget, I knew if I did not buy it I would regret it for ever, I even slept on it and bargained with myself that if it wasn't there the next day I wasn't meant to have it...well the next day it was still there, noone else had claimed my prize and it now sits pride of place on my sewing table with all my precious items in it.
