Superman Luggage

I wanted to share with you my first attempt at a holdall type bag.
My sister in law asked me to make some form of small luggage for my nephew for his first holiday, bless. Now, said nephew is Superman mad and we were delighted to find this fabulous licensed fabric.
My nephew is quite the critic and wastes no time at his tender age of three in telling you if something is not to his taste. I was so relieved that he loved it and carried it around my house for nearly the whole time he was here.
So cute, I am biased I know but still. Cute.

Giveaway win and some loveley Results

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win some lovely handspun yarn from KnitzandBitz. It is a lovely Silk, Alpaca and Shetland mix and is absolutely beautiful.

I instantly thought `bunny`

Here is `Babette`. She is a bedtime bunny and has sparked a whole new set of ideas (and unplanned yarn purchasing). This yarn knitted on much larger needles than my usual bunny yarns so she has come out a bit larger which I am quite chuffed with. I think I may have to consider more yarns from KnitzandBitz as their earthy blends lend themselves perfectly to my little critters. She is about 14ins (35.5cm) from slipper to top of her ears whereas her predecessors are 10ins (27cm).
Here she is with one of her smaller friends

I think I may have to rename my blog soon as I do not seem to be making many bags at the moment. Although I do have a `Superman Holdall` in production for my little nephews holiday - pics to follow.

I am going to try and sort this link thing out later but I am sure you can copy and paste for now. If anyone has `tips for an idiot, please forward them to me because I have followed all the blogger instructions (as I see them haha) but it still will not bloomin work.
