A Little Dollop Of Inspiration

I am still beavering away on my cushion this rate it might just be ready for Christmas! I did work out that if I sold it based on me being paid minimum wage for the amount of time I've taken over it, I would have to sell it for, wait for it...£133.95!! A little steep - if your lucky I'll throw the cushion in for free!

So, I either need to get speedier at my sewing or look to tackle slightly smaller projects. I was mulling over this dilemma I came across this in Grazia (17th October Issue) and there it was - clutch bags. I've made a few in the past and this was the perfect piece to reignite my interest.

My fav is the pink and white bag in the middle which looks remarkably like a laptop/iPad case to me.

Who Knew...

Yikes - its been quite a while! I've had the last couple of days off work in attempt to spend some time working on projects for my etsy store. I am mid way through a cushion cover that has been inspired by a good friend, but seriously, who knew tapestry takes so long!?! I also gave crocheting a go. The idea was to make a beanie, but again, who knew crochet was so complicated!? I am sure it wasn't this difficult when I was a kid! Pictures to follow...
