This purse is made from some good quality Japanese fabric and is fully lined. I found this Nicole Mallalieu pattern on the internet. Check out all her patterns at http://www.nicolemdesign.com.au/index.html. A perfect size for your phone and keys, or other small items you need to carry. I am making these purses with walking in mind as I always need something to hold my keys in and some change in case I happen to walk past the coffee shop. A natural leather wrist strap with a wooden bead finishes it off. Look out for many more of these, they are a lot of fun to make!

These bags fit lots of stuff in them, made from printed corduroy, unlined, but with double seams, they are nice and soft with a vintage button embellishment. The bags are lightweight and can be rolled up to put in another bag if you like.

My daughter Holly is always bringing home paintings and drawings and I needed somewhere to display them, so I made this canvas to match the colours in her room. This one is about 1m x 90cm. Brightly covered pegs hold the pictures on 2 lengths of ribbon and the gallery can change every day!
Something recently inspired me to make lots of things with elephants.... maybe it was something I saw at Sprout Gallery......
