sharing

I have so much to share with you, but so little time today so will get what I can up.

I did make myself a designer peg bag. I made the pattern up (i.e. I winged it!!) and the fabrics (echino) are pieces I bought last year from Patchwork on Central.

I also put together the little Kimino House bag I bought as a kit last week. Our little sewing group got together on Sunday for the first time this year, and it was such a great way to spend the afternoon. It is also the first time I have gone home from one of our gatherings with a finished project!! (nothing to do with too much talking of course)

I am also playing around with some doll ideas, so please meet Penelope. She is of course a little bashful since I insisted in taking her photo nude - poor thing. I am still making up my mind about her clothes, but have been flicking through this book for inspiration.

There are new books to share, but that will have to be another post, as Amitie has me working on creating a little project with the new freshcut range.

back to the sewing, more soon.

I love your peg bag. It reminds me of my grandma's 'rag bag'(for cleaning rags) that I've always been meaning to make myself. But I think a peg bag is even better.

I need a peg bag so badly, I think I will try one this afternoon! Yours is lovely and I will let you know how good ( or badly) mine turns out, lol!

Your doll is so cute! The bag is also beautiful! I have seen knitted bags like that before but in that amazing fabric......

I'm feeling pretty sorry for Penelope right now! When fully clothed, I'm sure she'll be happier. :o)

Great job on the pegbag patchwork. And the Kimono House bag - I've been thinking of trying one with handles like that. Very cute.

oh I just love that bag. I have been looking everywhere to find a pattern for that bag. Thank you thank you, now I know where I can get one. Do they sell online? Otherwise I'll just have to wait until my next trip to Melbourne. I love your choice of fabric too.
