Make Up Bag

Another little extra present for daughter Aleysha tomorrow.
This make up bag was made using Craft artist and Crafters Companions Frou frou CD.
a similar one was made by a CC design team member , But I just had to have ago and put my own spin on things.
The image was printed onto transfer paper and ironed onto white cotton, then I added the red fabric that I have used in the lining and some pretty lace.
While I was making the topper in Craft artist I also did another one ready for my daughter in law Emma.
I was going to make one up for her as a little gift, but did not have a large enough zipper.
  so I have put it away until after my holidays when I can get it done for her.
So watch this space
Bit of a blurry photo this one, I was trying to show the pretty lining of the bag, but you can still see it.
Enjoyed making this so much after I get Emma`s one done I will be making one for myself.

My Daughters Birthday is on Tuesday and my granddaughters birthday is two week later.
So I made these two cute owls for them as an extra present.
There is a sentimental value to these gifts, Perrie is about to have her 1st Birthday and has grown ot of her first baby blankets, These were made out of the pink fleece that mummy brought her home from hospital wrapped in, the printed fabric are scraps left over from my First rag quilt that I made for little Perrie`s Cot, So lots of memories in these .
The top photo is the one for Mummy its a bit bigger and I have added a Gusset to this one so its thicker all around.
The one below is smaller and much thinner, I sewed front and back together with out adding the thinker Gusset  , Just right for tiny hands to hold
I found a free pattern online , If you look in my pinterest  pages you will find lots of links to this and other cute free patterns.
Thanks for visiting please come again

My Abigail Bag

Just finished this wonderful bag its called Abigail and its from a pattern from Chris W you can find her store HERE , She has some stunning bag patterns for download.
This did have a few pattern pieces that needed cutting out but Chris gives you Detailed written instructions and Photos of each step that you need to but this bag together .
I really enjoyed the whole thing and learnt a few new techniques 
I used home deco fabric for the out side and it work really well, its adds nice solid feel to the bag, cream cotton for the lining 
Just a few of the pockets that this bag has, 4 snap pockets on the outside

Here you can see the two large snap pockets each side of the main Zipped compartment  you could fit a book into these

Here are two photos of the inside 
There is a nice safe inner zipped pocket on the one side and two mobile phone pockets and a pen pocket on the other

 Really enjoyed making this bag and would love to try out some more of Chris W designs in the future

 I am thinking that for the winter this bag would look stunning in Cord fabric
