I snapped three needles .....

... finishing off sewing this tote bag together!. My daughter wants this one to store some of her dolls in so I added a little butterfly to the pocket to pretty it up.





I have two project ideas in the pipeline before returning to softies, one involves this little collection of wet felted balls, there were more but my son has been nibbling on them and bitten chunks out (grrr!), the other project involves cushion covers for some spare pads I have lying around.

I love the bag. I've been thinking about doing some corduroy projects. Perhaps I'll make a trip to the fabric store today.

The tote for your daughter turned out so cute. I especially love the straps and the butterfly you added.

After reading your profile, I had to comment on where you live as Rutland is also the name given to one part of the city where I live here, in British Columbia.

Hi, I've been catching up on your archives and you make the sweetest things!

Do you have an Etsy shop? (Please don't tell RGH that I asked that ..... maybe you could answer in code ..... YES That monkey is great, or NO that monkey stinks - could try harder)

Many thanks :)

Thanks for that :)

I look forward to a time when the monkey won't be quite so whiffy. Please keep me posted when the stench has gone.

And about Goran. I'll fight you for him!

i felt awful leaving what could be deemed as a 'negative' comment on your blog!, your monkeys don't really stink, they are lovely!

The bag is awesome!! Love the chocolate colour you've chosen and how sweet are the felt balls. I'd love to try some of these one day.
