Zipper Purses

Pattern: Make Up Purses from Nicole Mallalieu
These are longer and shorter than the pattern because I have grand plans to fit specific things into them.

For this purse, I used a swivel hook to add a detachable strap so it can be used as a purse or a small bag.

Skivvy Upgrade

Project: Fancy up a plain skivvy
It seems my girl has decided it's no more afternoon sleeps for her so we spent the time together "fancying" up her pink skivvy. I asked her to draw a picture and she told me it was Tinkerbell. So now she has her version of Tink on her skivvy.

Owl Mobile

Project: Owl Mobile
This is a present for a soon-to-be-here baby. Her room is pink and green so I stuck with the colours for this mobile. I wanted something different from the usual cross that most mobiles are. The owls are made from felt with patterned bellies. The stick is from the garden, sanded and lacquered.

Refashion: Deck Chairs

Project: New covers for Two Deck Chairs
I bought these deck chairs from the Op Shop for $3 each. The new covers are not a perfect fit but they are perfect for sitting in the sun, with a cuppa, watching the kids play.

A little lavender bag to hang on a coathanger or sit in a drawer to make my clothes smell sweet.
