I think that is what one calls it when you take a skirt which is not your style, but made with quite nice linen fabric & in a moment of madness freestyle cut & recreate it into this bag with a little vintage fabric added for extra touch.
Despite the fact that I just madly cut without a pattern or even drawing a rough outline, the shape turned out better than I expected.

A little sewing to order....

The only sewing I have managed to do of late has been orders, but I am hopefully going to rectify that this weekend - I have a few bags & dresses I want to whip up so I will see how I go.

These are just a few pics of some requests I have made up.....

I made a larger order of these Sesame Street flares, but forgot to take a pic of them before I sent them off - but they were pretty much the same - just had Cookie Monster milking a cow instead - kinda cute really.

The chenille pants have really taken off again of late - i have made quite a few for people, it is funny really as I had not made any for so long & was thinking of destashing my chenille - I am glad I didn't now as it has been well used.

Who would have thought???

That this beautiful sweet baby would turn into a cheeky - yet still very beautiful - yes I am an extremely bias mother - 5 year old princess!

Thank you princess for the 5 years of joy you have given me as your Mummy. We love you to bits.

BAGS - To sell or not to sell??

I have finally made some has been so long & I really love playing around with different styles & fabrics. These are just a few that I have finished - made out of new, vintage & recycled fabrics. Not too outrageous, but it was a start.

I have been thinking of selling them, but I am unsure of the best place to sell them - markets or online??

What do you think ?
Sorry, I don't think I am cut out to be a bag model :)

Button Haul....

Obviously the title has given away what this photo is of, but I had an amazing button haul recently. Either a collector got rid of some of their stash (highly unlikely I am sure) or some dear old lady donated her sewing things to the local thrift & I was the benefactor of this lot & I even left some behind!!

I can't quite figure which are my favourites...
I am rather partial to the greens , but oh they are all so lovely. Now to be brave & use some
It is such a shame for others not to see them
They are ever so pretty....
Almost like pieces of treasure!
Which are your favourites???
Oh yes & I got some fabulous vintage buckles too...It really was my lucky day!
