Little Shopping Triumphs and Little Disasters..

Friday lunchtime I popped out to a craft shop about 20 mins from where I work (Dainty Supplies, Washington, Tyne & Wear). I needed a couple of zips and ended up coming out with a little stash!
I just had a little luck at the fabric and came away with a few fat quarters to add to my pile. Once home I spent an hour sorting through my fabrics and ribbons as it was becoming a real mess, I knew there was stuff I had bought but I couldn’t find it so it was time for a proper tidy up. Nothing constructive came of it other than seeing fabrics that I had not seen for ages which gave me a few ideas.

Today I set to making more makeup bags with my spotty fabric:

After this I did a couple of hearts from my scraps bag, using the template from the Tilda book and this is my first official sewing disaster, I am prepared to take the shame though; look at the state of this!!

I stuffed it with stuffing and lavender though so at least it smells nice, I think I'll stuff it away in the back of one of my drawers as a scented drawer pad - note to self must try harder!

Back Soon
