Some New Bags & Gorgeous Fabric

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.
Anyway better go and start the bedtime routine!


  1. Wow, you have had a busy weekend! Hope you had a lovely birthday and enjoyed celebrating Daisy's! My mum and brother share the same birthday! Love the bags, they look great. :) x

  2. Happy belated birthday. Your right, that fabric is gorgeous! I love the felted stuff too. Lovely bags. x

  3. Thanks for popping in today - your bags are even more beautiful in the 'flesh' - I love the pocket detail - perfect for that pesky mobile phone or keys
