I woke up this morning with every intention on finishing the baby bag and voila - done!
I was having doubts last week that I wouldn't finish it in time, but I'm so glad I have and now all that is left to do is fill it with baby gifts.
I wish Liz and Dale all the best on the arrival of the new addition to their family.
Now that the baby bag project is finished, I look at my board and there are a few projects on there that I need to get around to – some requests from friends and family, some new things I want to try and believe it or not some Christmas orders already.
I have had a pile of make-up and coin purses cut out for a few months now, but haven’t had time to sew them. I do love Nikki’s make-up purses and coin purses; they are quick and easy to sew and they make a great gift (considering it was my staple gift for everyone at Christmas I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do this Christmas hahahaha).
I have been playing with different ideas with the make-up purses, like putting a little pocket in contrasting colours , sewing on buttons or putting a little flap and pocket on the front.
I’m not the most creative when it comes to making something plain look nice, but I try hahaha. I think of what I like or what I think looks good and try to portray it in my sewing, in some experiments it hasn’t worked, but I am all for trial and error.
