After all that frantic bag making of the past couple of weeks I felt I should make myself a groovy vessel to transport my necessities to London on Friday.
I made this in an entirely self congratulatory frame of mind as a little reward for pretending to be a grown up in my job interview and wangling myself a fab new job ;)
These are Scrapstore fabrics that I have had for ages and very meanly kept just for me. I only had just enough to make the bag.
As it's a bit of a cavernous beast I thought a little zipper purse was in order - this time made from some very vintage floral curtains and because it's just for me I couldn't be fagged to line it!!
Evidently a girl can never have too many retractable pencils as I found these in the bottom of my bag. So all my gubbins are now secured and of course I'll never lose anything in my bag again, right?
Sadly (!) I had to force myself to take a trip to Hobbycraft today as Minx has an Easter Bonnet parade at school next Wednesday. She was thrilled with the lovely pink number I picked out for her to decorate this weekend.
An unplanned visit to the charity shop (thrift store) after school yesterday found me parting with a paultry 99p for this fab book:
Hey, Vicious Chicken!!! You there? This picture is just for you!! See, I told you there was an armadillo in there :)
Howzabout a pair of these beauties to keep your feet snug and warm - or better still for your littlies' fancy dress box - aren't they just the best?!!!
There is a listing for this book on Amazon but as it's no longer in print it's one of those order it and wait six months only to find they can't get it situations - in my very humble opinion.
I plan to make something really rather gorgeous from this book for my 155th Blog Giveaway.
As I'm carless tomorrow I will be able to resist the urge for retail therapy and will be at home stitching a special something for 'The Giveaway' - if I get it all done tomorrow I may even slip an extra post in so I can bring the draw forward..........keep watching.
This is how I feel about the 'something' I'm making from this fab little book:
I will now take my leave - g'night.
