I decided after packing up a little custom order in the morning to make a cosmetic bag as I'd made one the week before for a lovely customer. Teenage Son and I scoffed some nice homemade lentil soup - he went off to do his studying (well, that's what HE told me, hehe!) and I got started on my cosmetic bag . . .
. . . I only have a small amount of this tweed - but, heck, what am I keeping it in reserve for - better weather, hehe!??, and I decided to indulge my taste for cute Japanese fabrics and out came this fab designer print cotton from my tiny stash - tooooooooo cute!!!! :)
Little tin-soldiers, toy box themes, finished off with a gingham print edging - what's not to like???! The stage was set . . . I got to work :)
It all came together, my sewing machine decided to behave - no naughty tantrums or jams, and I was feeling nice and chilled as there was no rush to reach a deadline, just how we crafty folk all want to work in a 'perfect' world - how often does it happen tho!!!??* Here's how it turned out . . .
I finished it off with a little matching 'tweedie' gift-tag.
There should be more days like this :)
I've decided to keep Teenage Son at home as a good luck charm and NEVER to send him to school again!
More creative tales over in the fab new space :D
P.S. I was on a roll, and made a SECOND cosmetic bag later in the day - they're now both in the shop - Hurray!! :D
