I found this great bag pattern on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. Its from the wonderful Artsy Craftsy Babe's blog and you can find the pattern HERE.
I loved making this! Such a great pattern, and so quick to make up.
As soon as I bought this fabric I wanted to make it up into this bag. The pattern is called the Phoebe Bag.
It's a great size, has a pocket inside and a very convenient magnetic closure. I love the one strap too. The instructions are very clear and so easy to understand. I just love this fabric! It's by Windham Fabrics and called "I Dream of Paris" (naturally!!!).
I can see me making this bag again in another favourite fabric!
I've also finished a cute little Christmas decoration that I found on the Red Brolly blog.. It's a very cute little Candy Cane holder ("Rudolph's Antlers") and you can find more details on how to make him HERE. I didn't have any googly eyes for mine, but a couple of teeny black buttons finished him off. I think he might end up in Jacks Advent calendar... Isn't Jack too old for an Advent Calendar?? Apparently not!
This is the Advent calendar I made a few years back now. It is my own pattern and very large! It takes up nearly the whole of the kids bedroom door. I've used lots of Nancy Halvorsten fabrics in this.
A lot of the pieces are 3D and attached with buttons. I made the tree so large to be able to add on Christmas brooches and badges I've collected over the years.
I wanted them to look like Christmas decorations on the tree. The bottom is finished off with Prairie points and rusty bells.
Yesterdays photo challenge was "I am grateful for..." and this is my little collage... "Family"
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and even though we don't celebrate it here... it's nice to remember (not just at Thanksgiving but every day!) what we are grateful for and what we hold dear.
Have a great weekend!!
