It's just turned spring here in Australia, so I decided to get the feel for new season by making Laney a sunshiney top!

It's a Hors-icorn!

Round The World Bag

I stumbled across this bag when the designer was seeking pattern testers. I signed up straight away because I thought it was so cute and it was 'different' to a lot of the bag patterns that we see nowadays.

Quick Easy Pouch

I whipped up a small pouch for a birthday gift recently.
I hunted around for some nice fabrics, cut, sewed, trimmed, zippered and French seamed.
I think this small pouch is cute, perfect for popping into a handbag and it's definitely one-of-a-kind!

Butterfly wings


 
Four days from her fifth birthday, Laney asks "Pweeze Mumma, can I have butterfly wings for my birthday. I want to fly like a butterfly." How can I refuse such a cute request!

Tapestry Crochet

I'd never tried tapestry crochet before, so after stumbling on this cute pattern I thought I'd give it a try but as you can see from the original pattern I umm... well, I didn't finish it. Turns out attempting tapestry crochet for the first time with old scratchy yarn just isn't my thing!

The Big Project Bag Swap, Australia.



Do you use project bags for your craft projects?  I sure do and you know what, I wish I had bigger ones! All the projects that I'm knitting & crocheting at the moment seem to be at minimum of 4 balls and all my project bags are way too small!
