I started out by making a curtain to cover the open shelf in my new craft room, I am awaiting a new pole to complete it - so will take a photo later. But as I was at the fabric stall I decided to buy a metre of fabric and searched around the internet for inspiration and found this cute mini tote - see on my pinterest board the yellow one.
The instructions are really easy to follow and it is fully lined so that all the ends are neatly tucked away.
.......and have now made another with a bright pink flower this time.
So onto the flower, I bought a Kanzashi flower maker whilst on holiday last summer, and I have finally broken it out of the package - and have to say it really is great. They are so simple to make and quite addictive - but I nnow need more things to put them on, not so sure brooches are really the way to go? http://www.clover-usa.com/en/17-kanzashi-flower-makers This one was my first attempt, have done a few more now.
This is the actual one I used: http://www.clover-usa.com/en/kanzashi-flower-makers/380-kanzashi-flower-maker-round-petal-small-2-inches.html
