Craft rolls!

Made another craft roll and also bought the stuff to 'stuff' them with!

 First one I made with a pinstripe outside and grey pockets
Very fun! Am only doing 2 but will take orders!

Pretty aprons

Made these 2 little beauties this morning...

More views:
 I ADORE jumbo ricrac!!
 Tea towel holder and heirloom stitching around the pocket
How on earth do you 'model' an apron in your PJs?!
 Not much better!

Chalkboard, oilcloth and buckets!

Little oilcloth washbag!
 Travel chalkboards!

Chalkboard gift tags - so easy to write on and reuse!

 Storage buckets - with and without handles, round and square!

Cupcake bag!

Another Poppoyseed Fabrics bag, again slightly adjusted and made bigger! Love them!

More busy-ness for business!

Little hand-sewn cuties - stocking fillers!
Drawstring Christmas bags
 And I LOVE this! An oilcloth, padded, lined tote - so amazing!
 Just needs a good iron (carefully!)
 I think it's just beautiful! 
Thanks to Poppyseed fabrics for a great tutorial - I was able to adapt it for the oilcloth and make the pattern bigger too!

Little and large!

Made 11 bags today - 7 biggies and 4 small ones. Got 3 more small ones to do. The pile of completed stuff is growing nicely! Just 2 weeks until my first craft fair and it's looking good, I think!
The small ones are reversible too!
 The big ones are unlined - more like handy shopping bags!
Also made a book bag yesterday, which I was really pleased with as I've lost the pattern for it so did it from looking at the one I made myself years ago!
 Did manage to cock up slightly by cutting the fabrics on my lap and cutting straight through my pyjama drawstring and decapitating my tape measure! Oops!

Handbags and other stuff...

More bits and bobs - I adore these cute handbags!

And these little bow pouches are so fab - just the right size for a Kindle or E-reader!

Finally, made a little craft roll that fits a pad of paper as well as some crayons and colouring pencils!

Girly party bags

These are very quick and easy to do - approx 1/2 hour each if your machine doesn't keep breaking, literally, into pieces! Gonna make 3 more of these - one with the pink spot as main colour, a blue dotty one and a bright stripy one. 

Very cute little bags...

Pyramid purses - Christmas is coming!

Honestly, the angst I experienced making these little Christmas beauties was ridiculous - and guess why?! Yes, the bloomin' sewing machine! It's so weak! Went through 3 needles today! So I only managed a feeble 3 purses today, which isn't enough at all. Can't bear the thought of doing more of them tomorrow!!

Crayon rolls galore!

With many thanks to Skip to My Lou for the tutorial, I have been whipping up crayon rolls today - 8 in total in about 4 hours. STILL not quick enough but blimey, mum's machine drives me bonkers! Must have spent at least an hour in total sorting problems, replacing needles (the machine is so weak it can't got through enough layers before the needle snaps!), re-threading the needle, putting more thread on the bobbin (I'm sure it's not just me, but that bobbin runs out awfully quickly!) etc etc!!

Anyway, here they are, the little bundles of gorgeousness - now, do I sell them with the crayons, as I do with the bags, or without and sell them cheaper?!
