Satchel Bag

I only have a few of this style of satchel bag left as this style has been discontinued. I did this one up today with some of my favourite Laura Gunn fabric and appliqued a bird on the branch...

Bambi - Forest Friends

I love this bag! Using an old "Bambi" Golden Book.   Bambi is so cute and both pages have lots of colour and animals and I love the orange in the tree and the bluebird.  The straps are made using Japanese echino fabric, cute colourful bugs fabric for the lining with black and white polka dots behind the pages and pink and white polka dot heart.  The bag is 22cm high, 27cm wide and the base is 9cm.  The outside of the bag is covered in PVC to protect the old book pages and it is sturdy enough to stand up on its own.

Hello Kitty

I love this little bag, I got some Hello Kitty fabric and some cute polka dot fabric and the design is on both sides, and so is the cute little black and white yoyo with pink button....

The Poky Little Puppy returns....

Who doesn't love the Poky Little Puppy?  Well this time I've used a page from an old copy of the book and put it with a panel of Japanese Kei Honeycomb fabric.  The fabric and paper is covered with PVC to protect it.  This bag is made from canvas and is not lined.  It has a 10cm wide base and is 30cm wide and 22cm high

I love this birdie fabric, it's a Japanese cotton, so I've appliqued some singlets and t-shirts and they are now in my online shop.

I love op shops!

This is my new outfit and I got it from the local Salvos shop.  The dress was $4.00 and I bought 2 mens' ties and sewed them together to make the belt.  You've got to be happy with that....

Yummy cake

This cake is so nice - Ricotta, Fig and Chocolate.  The recipe is from an ABC Delicious cafe food book and it's from the Lotus Eaters Cafe in Cygnet, Tasmania.  They have a facebook page which is here .  If you would like the recipe let me know.

Owl Collage

I had this owl in a purple frame but it didn't look right so I painted an old wooden frame white and remade the collage onto bigger paper and added the moon and some falling leaves.  I like it a lot more now...

I love making these - I mostly put these in the Pod Collective shop  - Butteflies hand cut from Japanese Chiyogami paper in the black shadowboxes and the blue and white is a pretty decorative paper I found in my paper stash...

Little Red Riding Hood

I have been quite excited about making this bag and I'm really happy with the result.  It was so much fun making it, from finding the old book at the Salvos store and designing it and putting it all together! The handles have boning in them to make them stand up, the outside is covered in pvc to protect the book pages and it has a magnetic closure inside.  Can't wait to try another theme next!  Maybe 'The Jetsons'?!?  or maybe some cute kittens......
