Beautiful Bag Making!

The completed bag!

I am so pleased!  Today I finally had the time to make my bag and I am so pleased with the result!  There where a few hiccups along the way and I did get rather grumpy with some of the binding at one point but all in all it went pretty well!  It is a bucket bag from 'The Bag Making Bible' by Lisa Lam but I have added an elasticated pocket inside (just the right size for my iPhone) and I chose not to make it reversible!

Last night, whilst watching my favourite episodes of The Vicar of Dibley (the very last ones where she gets married in her pyjamas!!) I made some beautiful cards.  They are a large card, with 2 of them, 4 smaller matching cards.  I am very pleased with them!!!

I used some beautiful card that I saw in Hobbycraft and it just looks beautiful!  On each of the cards I have added a small embellishment, a little fabric butterfly, sparkly jewel, brad or paper flower!


I plan to put these on my Folksy shop to sell (when I eventually set it up in half term!)
