Fun with Fairy Quilt by Saffron Craig

I bought a set of these fabrics but haven't made anything yet... here is some inspiration

This has nothing to do with sewing or painting, but I also love food, culture and Asia. This photo was taken in Laos, somewhere I would love to go!

Storybook page purses

I LOVE making these!  They are old book pages made into coin purses with wrist straps in contrasting fabrics.  The pages are encased in plastic for protection and you can see the reverse side of the page inside the purses.  I've used a thick strip of velcro so there is no chance your things will fall out of these!

Mickey Mouse Tote Bag

This is my latest 'Storybook' bag.  Using 4 pages from an old Mickey Mouse Golden Book, the outside is protected with plastic and the inside is lined with blue and white polka dots.  The straps are long enough so you can put it over your shoulder and it sits at waist height, and the straps and behind the pages feature Japanese honeycomb cotton fabric.  The bag has a magnetic catch for a closure.  This is the first of my new larger Storybook bags - I am liking the black outer - use for a tote for yourself or a nappy bag, all will be one off designs so you can be sure no one will have one the same.
