Cyndi from Bluebirdswing is having a giveaway and it's an awesome one! She is very generous and is giving away 12 bag patterns! I still can't believe it. I cant believe I'm letting the "cat out the bag" either about this giveaway! lol
Giveaway closes on the 26th March so hurry on over to her blog for your chance to win.
While you are there check out the rest of her blog as you wont be disappointed. She makes bags (of course! lol) and they are awesome. Some of the bags are from her own designs and some are from patterns purchased from other bag designers like Artsy-Crafty Babe.
I am not sure if I want to do a post about this sewing project (pronounce that reject lol) as it's turned out a bit crap but yet still functional for the purpose I made it for.
I have collected a few clover products and wanted them all to be kept in the same place to find easily. A pouch for them I thought and grabbed some crap fabric to get rid of.
I had a "Crap Fabric Usage Day" once before and was amazed that the boring navy pin-whale cord fabric I used, to make a bird with, actually turned out great! It was due to the contrasting fabric and embellishments that went exceptionally well with navy cord!
Above is the bird and below is the crap pouch. It doesn't have any form and is saggy as well. lol. If I used some interfacing and also some other fabric that broke up the print fabric, eg a plain bottle green band somewhere, it may have turned out to be a project to show with pride!
Also want to take this opportunity to thank two very nice, kind bloggers who have both given me the "Sunshine Award". They also have fantastic blogs and so I feel very touched by their gesture!
Pleased to get this bag finished! It's been nearly done for quite awhile now.
Some hand beading does make a simple bag look a bit moorish. Even though it took some time to do, I am glad I did it.
A simple tote with raw edges. My brother came across this nice floral fabric and handed it over to me! I have lined the bag with linen and added a pocket.
Could make a nice library bag!
I still have some of this fabric left, and thanks to Cyndi from bluebirdswing I have another bag project in mind for this fabric! The "Phoebe Bag" designed by Rebeka Lambert of the blog artsy-crafty babe.
Contains everything I need to make an apron. Good clear instructions too.
I can even access her blog "Comin' Home" for further apron tutorials if I need to. You can find her blog here.
While your there do check out her "Show and Tell Friday's" post. ( here's a direct linkif you cant find it). Sounds like a nice idea. Like "show and tell" at school. If you remember those.
Well bye bye I had to work today and when I got home was nagged about "whats for dinner?". Nobody thought to organize something while I was working and they were home (public holiday) playing all day. Yes hubby too! lol. Males! they would starve if we didn't organize food!!! Now I'm pooped.
