This cute baby block is made with the 'Dick and Jane' fabric range by Michael Miller. It reminds me of when I was in Year 1, or 'First Class' as it used to be called. I also used some Japanese fabric and ribbon to make this and with a bell inside it's a light and interesting toy for a baby to look at and touch. This one is for a present for a very cute little boy, but I have a feeling I'll be wanting to make more of these...

These purses are denim on one side and a designer fabric on the other. The patterned side is also covered in PVC so you don't have to worry about it getting dirty. These purses are fully lined with a small handle on the side. You could use these for a purse, make-up bag, a funky pencil case or to keep other things in just because you love the fabric and really want one! I love making these purses as I get to use so many different amazing fabrics (good excuse to buy more!). The zip in these purses is 18cm long but I can make them any size if you want something different.
I made this card from the Handy Hints section of a 1973 Women's Weekly, and this cute cupcake fabric, to go with one of the bookmarks above. The beads in the bookmarks are made from a page with a French Fruit Flan recipe and photos from the January 3, 1973 edition.
