Before the flood….

Spice of Life Bag Jan 2011




I made a bag!


The Bird fabric was purchased from Thread & Ginger Victoria Point.



My workmate says it looks like a bought one, so I think that means I did a good job?



Thank you Julie for the Monica Poole pattern “The Spice of Life”.   Good friends gift bag patterns!

Productive Sunday, bag made now the pattern to sell


I  was asked to make this bag for an expectant mother and spent today doing exactly that .  It will be used as a nappy bag in this case.   Yes,this pretty pink & purple bag is for audderley adorable bag little girl who is on the way and due in March. I’ve just noticed that I’ve forgotten to make and attach it’s tail!!!







Udderly  Adorable Cow Pattern is now for sale, $10

Payment by Direct Debit postage $1 to Aust Residents



 Being short on time and with many many projects of my own I hope to make a start on, this request  will be the only one I undertake this year – I have to be strong and kind to myself! Does that make me sound selfish?

Please give me a new home where I’ll be more than just read….

POSTAGE: $1 per pattern – will combine

PAYMENT: By Direct Debit

Thanks for taking the time to view these, I hope you will do more than read these lovely patterns!

How to reform a Bag Lady

Deciding which of my many bag patterns to release to new homes could be a true test indeed.  Perhaps I won’t start with Bag Patterns!!!  See the dilemma I face already….

Bag Nov 2005  no, not this one, I think I’ll keep it, so fun to make….

Bead Bag  I made this without a pattern so no hard choice required here!

bags 003These two can go,  $10 ea for never more than opened and read.  I was going to make them one day…….I have to make a start somewhere…..

Sew Much Stuff, Sew Little Time

I’ve had a sort through my room, unfortunately though, I have run out of holidays to spend the time required to get my “Goodies to Go” up online for you all to see. 

My plan is to make this happen next weekend, so please stop back in then to see what you might to have living in your stash :)
