Today is the last day of school holidays here in Victoria. Which means life will return to some type of routine from tomorrow.
Usually our holidays are filled with day trips to museums and zoos, however this time we haven’t made one visit! This past week has seen the 6 of us suffering with a bad cold. We are starting to feel better in time to return to work/school!
Staying at home has given us time to make these.
Ms E (20) wanted a new sling bag for months so I finally made one.
The bag uses 3 different fabrics and has a sectioned pocket inside for pens, phone and other bits and pieces. It is large enough to hold her ipad. The straps are long (as per her request) and tied in a knot. I used a pattern from Better Homes & Gardens Oct 2007 as a guide and enlarged the bag size and made the straps longer.
This is backed in an aqua solid and the binding is black and white stripe.
I liked this fabric from Emma Jean Jansen’s Ella Blue range I have started another quilt already!
Finally Miss A (11) had a little play with my stamps, dies and markers and created all these with no assistance from me. Actually I was at the hairdressers when she made these.
She created the little box herself with her scoreboard. Yes she has her own!
She isn’t afraid to use her pattern paper and mix them up. I should take notes.
Miss A also has a new pencil roll which I need to take pics of.
Until next time
