Dont think i posted my Xmas cards either - I dodnt use them so they are for sale now. Check out my facebook page

These are using Lili of the Valley die cut sheets, and their kraft papers as well.

Well not only have i started making bags I have also started a crafting class........ Its a tentative dip into running classes but we do have some ladies coming back for a 2nd go so we cant have been that bad. Heres a couple of photos to prove it did really happen - I am still astounded that we did it. 6 ladies went away happy crafters with either 4 cards or 2 scrapbook pages minimum ( some did 3).

Thats me in the purple/ble stripy top and my neice Hannah in the pink t shirt. And yes we did it in the church.

My Bags...........

Hi everyone.  I have had a slight holiday from my blog and have now come back with fresh ideas.  I am now sewing as well as papercrafting. Who knew i had it in me.  I started by making a little handbag for myself and I posted it on a facebook group i run and it just took off. I now have a steady sale of bags and I have also joined with my neice and we ar e running a small but perfectly formed craft group down in Leicester once a month. More on that laters..  Here are some of my bags that are still available to purchase.  The smaller handbags are £12.50 and the larger Totes are £17.50 - both plus postage (£2.70 1st class).  The all have no fastening and 6 pockets on the outside of the bag. I think you can use for crafty items so paint brushs, pens, knitting needles or just for you normal shopping or as a beach bag or baby bag. I use a small handbag for work (in a tartan fabric) and put my phone in one of the pockets, my pass in another, travel tissues in another, lip gloss and mascara in another and still have 2 pockets left over. Inside comfortabbly holds my purse and filofax/diary and a tablet when i need it. The larger Totes obviously have larger pockets and a side pocket will easily hold a Kindle or Tablet.
