I hear you cry!! Having a grumpy few days as my crafting is not going to plan. I'm getting frustrated with my lack of inky inspiration. All my inkiness seems to have deserted me, just seem to me making a lot of mess but nothing much else. Perhaps my inky mojo has the hump with me as I'm spending more time sewing.
Anyhoo wingeing aside, as I have no inky projects to show you, thought I would show you that I haven't been idle. I am enjoying sewing and the matryoshka bag was fun to make, a bit challenging as it has an internal zipped pocket and a little mini zipped coin purse, that is attached inside. I have to make three similar as my mum wants one and I have to make two for someone for christmas presents. Don't know what to charge really as the materials are quite pricey, I always seem to pick out the expensive fabrics, so think I will just charge to cover my costs.
These sugarloaf pouches are nice to make and can be stuffed with a few goodies for christmas presents.
I used some upholstery fabric for this bag and it was a real b****r to sew. Changed my mind about the ruffle, but hey ho to late after it was all glued in place, so stuck with it now LOL!
The final bag is quite small and had quite a lot of hand sewing which I'm not too keen on, and I made a few mistakes along the way, (so lot's of unpicking going on!) I do try and rush things, need to take my time and be more like the Cadburys Caramel Bunny LOL!! Does anyone remember those adverts? Anything chocolate related always seems to stick in my mind!
That's it folks, hopefully my wondering inky mojo will return soon.
In the meantime Happy Crafting and a big thank you for all the lovely comments you are leaving and I hope to catch up on commenting later. My bag candy has now closed and I will get Hubby draw a name for me later. Have a great day.
For all my blogging friends and my sister who lives in Washington DC take care and thinking of you all. xx
