day one

Today has been a day of trial and error and making random bits and pieces for no apparent reason.

This morning I made a mini very hungry caterpillar backpack- I might even be doing a tutorial for it, so watch this space…Image

A pirate head cushion and a phone case. I may well do tutorials for these too… My current plan is for a tutorial every two weeks, with a blog post about what I’m doing every two days.

I love making new things and seeing my finished creations. I’m updating my Etsy today with some new things, but I utterly adore a few of the things I’ve made lately.


I love making these little purses. Plain or patterned material, and I can make a few from just one fat quarter. I used a dark purple one for myself when I went down to London recently and it worked really well, and I was able to iron out all the little problems (of which there was only one, and maybe the size… I had a lot of space inside and not much cash to put in it!) 

I’m working on a similar design for pencil cases, too, and make-up bags. It all goes down to the size of the fabric I use, and if I do a tutorial I’ll be sure to show that.

Well, I’m going to get back to organizing my etsy and making some more things. The mini backpack tutorial should be up sometime this weekend.
