Peg Bags

I have finally worked out how to make these fully lined, but much easier.

I watched a Debbie Shore video - and it planted a few seeds how I can do them so much better!

I even lined the cherries with cherries

Nail file covers

I saw these glass nail files that looked so attractive, so went to work and made them some covers.

Thought it would be perfect to add in some matching items, tissues and glasses case....what do you think?

Can do some instructions on how I made them....

last of the jeans catch up

These first 2 were made for kids jeans and so are only small bags - but how cute are they, they were nice colour denim too:






These had were the last of a pair that I did early last year, and this one was finished at the end of the summer!

Jeans bag - a few more as usual

Here are a few bags that I have made out of jeans over the last week, I have 3 more to finish, they are all cut out and ready to go, just need to make some flowers for them before sewing them up!


And this a little one that i made using all the scraps of the the first pair of jeans that I made into a bag - and was on a bit of a learning curve...so as you can so I joined up lots of scraps, but it is very cute and seems to work - what do you think?

Big jeans bag

These jeans were too small to cut in half so thought I would make one big bag.  thought the pockets were a bit boring on such a large bag to made a new flap as well. Used a fancy stitch on the machine...just because.

The zip left in place caused me problems as I couldn't sew anything in the back centre - so added two closures.

Shopping

I know I didn't need any fabrics, but I like to visit a relatively new shop that is in Rose Green when I visit my parents in Bognor Regis.  It is only small but has a good selection of bits and bobs, you can see that I also bought a thimble and some scissors.

She has a good stock of the Makower and Tilda fabrics, and I really couldn't decide what I wanted so just bought a selection of 'craft' cottons which I thought were just as nice.

She has a facebook page:

Across the road there is Rose Green Centre for Art and Craft that offer a selection of courses, and has paintings and other crafts for sale:
