A couple of weeks ago, I had a birthday, and received a little money as a gift, so I thought long and hard what to get myself, coming up with no ideas, I decided it would be better invested in some new fabric pieces which to me is so much more exciting than buying new clothing or shoes! Having chosen a cotton print with little multi-coloured hearts, I rummaged around the shop finding coordinating cotton fabrics. Armed with my pile of cotton I went to have it cut into half meter pieces. Once paid for and home, I let my creative moment begin, I resurrected one of my own owl designs which I wanted to use as the central feature panel and found matching coloured felt in my stash, then work could commence.
Having set my little felt pieces out, I then hand stitched them to cream fabric, Cut up some of my new materials and arranged then as a patchwork border, The heart print fabric was just perfect in design and quantity to surround the panels I had and to make the fabric handles/straps. Inside I made one of my multi-pocket features, one pocket to include a zip for security and a magnetic clasp in the centre opening, then hand quilted the whole bag added some wooden buttons for eyes – Finished!
Another one off creation – see below – now available in my Etsy shop
Happy belated birthday! I hope the year ahead is everything you want it to be and more. xo 😀
Thank You Jackie, that would be nice- luckily I never have too high expectations or needs, that way I don’t have huge disappointments either xo 🙂
I understand completely! I tend to be cynically optimistic about things in the future. 😀
Me too 🙂 Planning too far ahead never seems to pay off, But I do hope it is a better year than last year and for you too! xo 🙂
