Covered notebooks

Haven't done these in a long time, and now I can't get nice simple notebooks :( at a reasonable price.

Just refined my way of making them as well, so they are easier and neater!

Mini Santa sacks

Following on from the Christmas drawstring bags, I have had fun yesterday making these mini bags.  They have a drawstring too.  I thought they looked cute, can hang them on the tree, although they are a bit bigger than the average dec!

Charging £4 for them, much preferred making this style!

Cute fabrics

Been out and about in the last month and bought some new fabrics, and now they have been made into a few things!

Christmas is coming.....

I never know what to make for Christmas, but love some of the fabrics.  I have a bunch of fat quarters bought in the sale after Christmas, so made these drawstring bags, thought they would be ideal for putting little presents in and hanging on maybe a tree, a hook or a doorknob.

I have made a few more today, but now want to do something else with the rest.

These few were left from last year

You can see them hanging!

I have always wanted to make one of these, there seems to several different methods - so here is the first attempt, will have to give it another go with some different fabric.

Same bags different fabric

The top fabric, is the one I bought from Cambridge, thought I would take a snap while the sun is shining.

I have left some of these on Wollaston Home & Crafts it is a cute little shop in a Courtyard.  You can pop next door and get some DocMartins as the factory shop is there.

Also in the Courtyard is a butchers and a tearoom, the Rushden Lakes is not far from there either,

Too much fabric and my start at patchwork

So as I have far too much fabric I thought I would have a my first go at very simple patchwork, it now needs pressing and making into a blanket, with very simple quilting....which I will do very soon!

My fabric collection seems to grow...who can resist some new fabric!

So this is all my 100% cotton so very pretty.

And this is all the other fabric...I have recently tidied it all up, so that it inspires me to get making!

This is my first go at patchwork, it now needs pressing and making into a blanket, which I will do very soon!
