Bit more sewing

I've made this bag for my daughter - she kept looking hopefully at the others I'd made so I had to make her one of her own ! Was also thinking this would be nice done in velvet or silk as an evening bag, will have to have a play.

My first attempt at using a purse frame - really pleased with how well it has come out will have to make a few more.

This one doesn't look much when it's flat but has a snap opening - just the right size for headphones, iphone or change

Some more items

Doorstop I made in a differant fabric

Been practising my Applique too - this was on a ready made bag I had but I could put it on anything, feeling a bit happier with it, feel like I am starting to get the hang of it

Satchel style bag

I finished this bag last night, its my second attempt at this style of bag - I'm really pleased with this version (first one wasn't so good !) especially as I made the pattern and designed it as I went along - I hope to make these in several fabrics, they should sell for around £20, get in touch if you are interested.
Has an internal pocket and fastens with a magnetic snap (buttons just for decoration)

Bigger bags

Have made some bigger bags this week - the floral one is laminated Cotton and the stripy one is a heavier cotton - Unfortunatly the laminated cotton ones would work out at least £20 each as this kind of fabric is so expensive, so I don't think I will make them regularly as I don't think they are very cost effective BUT if anyone wants to do a custom order then I could do that as long as you are aware of the rough cost upfront, let me know if you are interested.

In the meantime I have been cutting up some old curtains to make some other designs so will hopefully be able to list some more items on Etsy next week - check out my listings by clicking the button to the left. There is also a contact me button there if you want to get in touch regarding any custom orders.
