Look what I made last night

Isn't it a lovely pattern? It's by Anna @ noodlehead and it's a free tutorial on her blog. It took me just over an hour to not only read the instructions, but to select the fabrics to use AND more importantly, find a zip to use! I couldn't put the press stud on last night, so put it on this morning (neighbours might not have liked me banging with the hammer outside after 10pm) and took pics.

If you want to make one of them yourself head over to Anna's blog, please say hi for me....however, if you don't want to, or don't know how to sew, I'm going to be making some of these babies to sell....they'll be on my Crafty Owl blog next I make them, I'll list them.

Hope you're having a great day, it's wet and windy here today.....and they've increased the chance of rain tomorrow.....GRRRRRRRRR, Khris and I are at Semaphore street fair and don't want to get rained on.

Another giveaway

How exciting. Leka's Quilts is having a can either win the book "Applique Outside the Lines" or you can win one of the following cute purses.

To rush over to enter the giveaway either click on one of the pics or the title. Good Luck.


Finished this a while back but lost the pics!

Above are a few pics I've finally managed to locate. A very close friend of mine (Ex MIL actually!) wanted a toiletries bag made for her sister who was going into hospital. Pauline (the sister) is an owl lover, so of course I had to use owl fabric. For the bag, I used Joypatch's Tutorial. I lined it with a plastic tablecloth, which makes it showerproof, not waterproof! In front of the bag, is two jingle owls I made up for Pauline to hang on her Christmas Tree. (Click on the jingle owls link to find the online tutorial to make your own jingle owls, or click on my store, and after this weekend, I will have some listed for sale.)

All in all, I'm really happy with how the bag went together, and if I can manage to read directions properly next time, the bag will be to the exact dimensions of Joy's tutorial....this one is a bit different....hence the different top to it.
