A Whole Week of Craft

Last week was half term which means a week off for me as well as the children.

I have had such a busy and fulfilling week.

Inspired by this bag which I get asked for so many times but cannot get the handles any more.

I have completed some bags for my upcoming craft fair in April. The handles are slightly smaller so the pattern had to be adjusted, but they are essentially the same bag. Here is the first, the others still need to have heir linings sewn in.

Also, I acquired this book a while ago and finally have had time to try it out. I would highly recommend it to any one who struggles to get the right fit, colour, size. You make the pattern yourself to fit you, not the high streets idea of what they think you should be.

This is my first attempt in Liberty `Peasblossom` Kingly Cord. A simple straight skirt with a zip at the back. I am halfway through a mohair top to go with it. Its not the greatest photography in the world. Its kinda difficult to take a photo of a skirt yourself if you are wearing it. Where are my family when I need them.

The top may take a while though as I have a new obsession - knitted rabbits! More next time.
