Dresden plate bag

This free pattern came from online.  Great instructions and very easy to make.






It makes a cute little shoulder bag - ideal for a little girl, I think.

A solution for all problems...

... this may prove a quick sale, I suspect.

Who cares what the question is!"
Oh yes indeed!

Springtime owls

More owl phone cases, this time in Spring themed yellows and greens.  I really enjoy hunting out those smallest scraps of fabric for these cases.  I pride myself on never creating two identical cases; if I do repeat a fabric for the wings, then the denim will be a different shade, or the lining will be different.
These little chaps are ready to fly off to new homes during this sale season, I hope.

Owl phone cases again

Spots and lace in this lot - rather an assortment, but pleasing.
I am still surprised by the popularity of this line - but hoping it continues!
I'm not sure whether I like the wakeful owls or their sleepy friends best!
You can find the tutorial for these through my tutorial page.

Shoulder bags

These bags make good use of jeans pockets, both for decoration and for practicalities.  In most cases these came from children's jeans, enabling me to use two pockets per side.


Front view, back view and open.

Boy bibs

Photographing my items I decided I needed to find a way of grouping bibs.  Not wanting to be sexist, these bibs appear particularly suitable for gifts to baby boys!

Precious

I love the slogan on this bag.
"The simplest things in life are often the things most precious."

I'm really pleased with how this design has come out.  And yes, I am (still!) working on a tutorial for it.  It's an easy make - just need to find the photos I took!

Pink owls

I've been busy restocking - and busy working! - and haven't managed to blog for a while.  I had a mammoth photography session yesterday, however, and can now share some of my recent creations.  As you can see from the dates at the bottom of the page, my sales season will recommence next month, and I have been focusing on restocking the best selling lines.  Chief among those lines is the owl phone case which was one of my first posts.  You can find the tutorial here.

Pink has been a popular colour for these, so I made a batch using up various scraps.  I've bought a collection of owl eye patterns, and this has saved me a considerable amount of time.  It's fun playing with the different designs of eyes as well.
I'm adding this post to the following link parties:
