Bagpuss!

After the successful success of my previous tie bag (available in my etsy store) I decided to make another one all for me! I had this skirt which I bought at a jumble sale because I loved the kalidescopic/Op Art fabric:
Because of the shape and the limited amount of fabric I decided that the best way to use it might be as a bag. Then I had some fun, bright flowery 60's fabric from Fabric Land so I decided that the juxtaposition of bright and monochrome would be good; and I ended up with this:
Hey Mr. Lizard!
Hey Mr. Cat!
I've had the retro / Cadillac car tie for a while and have been desperate to use it, I quite liked the semi-mismatched patterns so I decided this was the project for the tie! The bag is reversible, so that I can be either colourful or a bit less colourful.

The other not-so-exciting project I finished recently was 2 t-shirt resizes:

Dark Side of the Coop
From Large to AppletiniTiny! Terrible pictures but you get the idea. If you'd like to see my t-shirt resizing method there's a little blurb about it right here.

This post was made available with Degrassi Jr. High and Seinfeld

Orange you glad?

Pufflings!

Tomorrow I will [hopefully] have a shared stall at Pokesdown Artisan Fayre with all of my delights and my newest offerings:
Stripey, stripey... stripey bag of summer
A s'wheat summer handbag made from the last fabric sample I printed; I think the style and colours are very current, kind of tie-dye, which excites me because it's fun to be on trend for once.

Puffy badgers
Some super kawaii yo-yo puff badges! Did you know that a baby puffin is called a puffling?! Yeah!
