Stuffed bag

Afternoon all

Well I hope you are safe and not being blown away with the strong 
winds that are in the UK today. 

Very windy here I have to say, and I remember the storm of 1987 which 
ripped the roof off our home. 

So I hope today will not be so bad here in Devon

Anyway been playing with my sewing machine today, using up a couple of 
fat quarters scraps  I have used up scraps of ribbon and ric rac.

Stuffing was bits from my bag of wadding scraps !!! So a bag out of scraps. 

I have made this bag - ops should have taken photos along the way

I have used a bit of poly wadding to give the bag a bit more body and stuffed the handles with 
toy stuffing. 

I have added ric rac from Crafty ribbons along the bottom edge front and back 
and a ribbon again from Crafty ribbons by the handle. 

I hope you like it. Now I have to wonder what I am going to do with it. 

May give it away to a family member.? 

I would like to enter it for the 

Crafty Ribbons Challenge over on Facebook

Sewing again

Hi there

How are you today. 

Thought I would share today a few bits of sewing I have been

Both these items have been made with scrape material bits

 And the zip bag using joined together inside material 
and scraps of the white star material. 

a curtain for the small bag with the insides using 
the ironing board cover which I replaced

See the zig zag stitches to join the material together here. 

The red bag with the 3 zips have 3 pockets so can be used
for all those interesting items which need to be stored. 

I am using it for my hand sewing items. 

Have a good day and hope that I have inspired you to 
pick up your sewing too. 

Have a great day

You drive me Batty

Well hello again 

Here I am thinking about things and trying to catch up doing what I should be 

Life seems to get busy and things get in the way. 

But with my garden getting to the point of "running down" for Autumn it is giving 
me a bit more time to craft. Well here is me hope it will be the case. 

I have got this card ready to show you for the challenge over at 

Love to Scrap Challenge blog 

I have used..... the images of the bats and sentiment from  Oddball Art Co

I have coloured in the bats with alcohol pens and cut them out 

mat and layered the sentiment onto black card and mirri board 

Then I designed a background paper 

mat and layered that and here it is. 

Something a bit different but fun too. 

May even use it for my partners birthday card, his birthday being on 
31st October 

Anyway hope to see you soon 

take care and crafty hugs

Birthday boy

Can you see the moving head of the dragon ?  I used a bit of plastic folded to make it 
using red tape to attach it. 

I hope you will be inspired to pop over to the blog and I look forward to seeing you there

Pamper yourself

Hi there

How has your week been? Terrible times in the USA with the hurricane
puts ones own worries into perceptive dont you think?  

It was my Daughters birthday a couple of days ago so here is
her card which I made for her. 

the back 

the inside

I have used Hunkydory Pampered Paws kit to make the card

Thought she needed to be pampered so I hope she liked it. 

Nearly sorted out my craft room now and all set to get back to doing 
my crafting which I am looking forward too. 

I was at the Village Hall this week with my cards and had people 
throw their hands up in horror when I displayed my Christmas Cards 
but I have to say that there are only 8 more coffee morning before the Big Day!!

Where has this year gone? 

Well that is me for now. 

Been busy making Bean Chutney, had to beg and borrow jars this year. 

Looks like it will be tomato chutney next :) 

Have a great day

Happy Summer Holidays

Hi there 

Well I am here writing this on August Bank Holiday for the post today

So think it is quite in order to say "I expect there are a lot of people with this on their minds"

I have used the image from Dr Digi 

I have coloured in the image with alcohol pens and then designed the background using 
colour pencils. 

Added a sun and the words 

I hope you like it and hope to see you over on LTSCB for this month.

Happy days
