there's no stopping me!!
My sister and I took a wander through Spotlight last week. Dangerous I know.
We were both drawn to this purple print, we're both purple girls really. I was wanting to make a new bag for myself and offered to make her one as well.
She found this gorgeous grey marbled fabric that I used for contrast, and once I got started I just couldn't stop!!
Plus, I have an issue with matching sets. I like things to match. It galls me that this set doesn't tone in with my pram liners. If I had madder skillz I'd be making a matching purse. Srsly. It's like the three kids issue. Odd numbers. Lack of symmetry. All scary things.
As a result, I'll be sending over a tote bag, matching fabric envelope and keyfob. My little set also has a nappy wallet and matching bib as well.
Oh and the envelopes, why right? Well. I have this bogue friend who wrote this post. Normal people probably thought oh what a great idea, I should do that. I thought 1) as long as I hang around with her I'll be right and 2) how can I make that pretty?
So ta-da! Little fabric envelopes for stuff! Mine currently has the bib in it along with a little packet of tissues, some panadol and some bandaids. Noice. Unusual.
I couldn't resist a couple of fat quarter packs of pastel owls either, so I made a few bibs for the babygirl along with a couple of 'taggies'. She's one of those babies who will ignore the toy in favour of sucking on the tag, so now she can do that all she likes with a fine choice of colours and textures.
Love it when time and energy line up and allow me to create!
Meanwhile watch this space if you're a fan of handmade items... I have a special custom slot giveaway planned for my 100th post in a couple of weeks ;)
