Bags, gifts and buttons.

Had a great afternoon yesterday on the sew-in with Chocolate Cat. Lots of "talk-in" went on but we did have something to show for our time. I showed her how to make my easy bags. There is only one way to do that...and that's make one so here are the two we completed earlier...

They are 'one of ' originals..except there are two! I tried black webbing for the first time as a strap, found it at our local army disposal store (??). It worked very well.

After choccy cat left I was going to bath Archie but remembered i wanted to add a little something to my sister's birthday presents so i came up with this little "maintenance caddy".
She has lost over 10 kgs in the last few months, even with a baby and other kids at home, so now is the time for some pampering.
Hope your day is equally fun.

Just a note.....The Chocolate Cat handles the sales of these beautiful ceramic buttons for her designer friend, Robyn Allen Waters. I have some and they are gorgeous, really add something special to your stitcheries.
