Cloth Bags

I made this bag from a pattern by Cath Kidston which was in "Country Style" magazine, January 2010 edition. I used calico, block printed for the outside & lined it with a cotton I found at an op shop. I added a doily, an applique and some vintage buttons to pretty it up. The top of the bag folds inside or pulls out depending on what you have to carry.

time for new things

Well hello everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend...keeps us busy with family and catch up....
I have finally put some more photos on the computer so here is a bit of what I've been doing....
small handsewn toys are my thing at the moment....have found some old patterns so have played with a few....Miss4 is very taken with them and helping with ideas for more....
Big sister doll ( Lollipop ) has new friends as well, although apparently it is her family!!! and they like to sleep a lot so we have to make pillows and blankets so they can have lots of rests....
I have been playing with milk bottles and making boats and cars and buses..... you may need some imagination to see what I tried to achieve....miss4 gives instruction for the cutting.....but nothing is a failure...she wont let me throw it away....she makes a new use for it....but she doesnt realise she's recycling.....we've been camping with tents and played in the playground with slides and had accidents where we need a bandage or two as well as hunting dinasaurs....

big dolls dress is made from remnants, an old shirt & a doily. the smaller doll is dressed in two napkins (from the op shop) & old buttons from the grandma tin.

Blue Bird in the Berries

Blue bird in the berries was created from wire i rescued from the trailer load of rubbish destined for the tip, & beertops, that different people have contributed to my ever growing pile. The bird is wire wrapped with leftover satin, the doily top is fairly self explanatory, this is all i have completed in the last couple of days. have more dolls on the go, should have some more photos soon.
