Steampunk Adventure and a new Bag!

I have joined a new steampunk group recently formed through Congleton U3A and I am really excited! We think we are the only steampunk group in the whole of the U3A organisation and we are truly having fun exploring ways to dress up and adorn ourselves in long skirts, boots, a variety of tops, hats,…

Disney Stax—101 Dalmatian 

I have been sent this lovely collection to have a play with from the Craft Cotton Co.. 5 beautiful fat quarters, nice quality cotton, perfect for your little prince and princesses. The bundle is mainly suitable for girls and sadly I don’t have any granddaughters but I do have a friend who has a cute…

Carry Case for Work-In-Progress.

The other night I lay in bed tossing and turning thinking about my upcoming holiday and how I was going to transport a mini quilt I was working on without folding it and messing it up (lots of little pieces arranged on it). At 2 am I decided to get up and tackle the problem…

Craft Cotton Co Snazzy Grey fat quarter bundle

Recently I was lucky enough to be selected to review a fat quarter pack from the Craft Cotton Co, the Snazzy Grey range. Snazzy Grey range I always get excited when opening a package and not knowing what is inside, I was very happy when I pulled the fabrics out of the envelope to find…

N.S.F.W. (Not sewn For Weeks) Tales of a Part time Quilter. Quilt Bags and Glad Rags – Laptop / Tablet Sleeve and Lunch Bag

Hi Everyone I know it has been a while since I blogged. I would say that life and work got in the way, but frankly, I have just been going through the annual winter blues. I find it hard enough to be motivated to get up and go to work, sewing and the writing about…

Bunny Bag

I can hardly believe that Easter is nearly upon us, it doesn’t seem five minutes since it was Christmas! I usually like to make a little something for our smallest granddaughter as she isn’t a chocolate egg lover. This was made a few Easters ago and you can find the pattern here…      …

The Holiday Day Trip Bag

Once or twice a year, in the school holidays I take my two children into London. A big day out on the train into the big city. Living in Essex means it’s less than an hour to get in to Central London via Fenchurch Street station. Right across the road is The Tower of London…

Trio of Reversible Bags

Another challenge announced and before I know it my name has been put forward and appeared on the list to be part of it! How does that happen? Due to time restraints I had to rethink my original offering and decided to go along with something that I know off by heart and what I…

Drawstring bag

As I have explained previously, my mum taught me how to sew. She also taught me how to cook, and she was usually quite happy to let me loose in the kitchen, without worrying that I would blow myself up or burn the house down. In fact, it could be due to some of her…

Make a Drawstring Bag & Make a Difference!

One of the first things I really liked to make was a little drawstring bag. Once you get into sewing bags, there really is no way to stop. From simple gift bags to cosmetic pouches, to kids backpacks and even sturdy travel bags there really is a bag project for every sewer and every level…

Tea Towel bag

It was on my birthday a couple of years ago that one of my friends had an accident. This was no ordinary accident. She is still (just) in her 40’s, although her big birthday is this month (and she will probably have had it by the time this blog is published), and – I hope…

DIY Mobile Phone Case

Vegans don’t usually buy leather products and so finding a nice phone case it sometimes difficult.  One day as I was, yet again, searching for a nice case to replace my old one (one of those you open up like a book with credit card holders on one side) I took out my phone to…

DIY Quilting Bag

The quilting bag which can be adapted for your needs . I so enjoyed the sew-a-row challenge last year (Fire & Ice) that I signed up again when the word was out that there was going to be another one.  I am one of those people who think things are ‘a good idea at the…

Appliqué panel for a bag. 

I’m not a traditional quilter so my take on a bag, is to make the ornamentation first. So here’s how to make a panel that can be attached to any bag including the simple shopper in my next instalment. Create your design. My finished panel is approx 10 inches square. If you can draw your…

Simple shopping bag with panel.

    With your panel finished, it’s now time to choose the fabric for your bag. I have chosen a simple canvas, to show off my panel, you can choose a plain or patterned fabric. I cut my fabric to 38×19 inches. Yours could be smaller or larger depending on what you wish to use…
