I made this little gift bag from a scrap of Laura ashleys red gingham - I think red gingham is my most fav fabric - EVER!!! Just seeing it makes me feel happy and girly inside. I borrowed a yo yo maker from a friend and that is how I have made the flower for this bag - thought it was so easy and really effective I have been a bought a couple now in different sizes, however the heart one I was loaned is a different story altogether - suffice to say not a success story! The circular box that I have sat it on to pose for this piccie was a pressie from my friend Lisa as part of my birthday pressie - dont think she had heard of Cath Kidston before she met me, lol! when she handed it to me she said I think its like that Cath Kidston person makes! It is beautiful - another feel good jewel amongst my treasures!
Next and before you say it - I know I am a little premature but wait....
it was a challenge set me by my elder sister who I have to say I am very very proud of - she suffers terribly with MS, but she has managed to do a b tech in arts recently and the stuff she has produced is fabulous. ANway as I say I went to visit one day and she gave me a pressie - the tree below except it was falling to pieces and looked very sorry for itself and she said do something with that - well the top was missing for a start - it no longer came to a conical end - just stopped halfway across as if someone had cut the end off...I have to admit to being rather intimidated for a while - it sat in a box on my desk for a couple of months - then one day I got the gusto and went for it - here is the result
I have just been surfing the tinternet and found this
