I also have a new tutorial for you. This is for a "taggy". In case you don't know what this wonder is, it's a little security blanket for a young child and it has ribbons attached which children find curiously calming. My granddaughter loves hers but sadly she lost it recently. She asked me to make her a replacement which of course I did. This is what it looks like:
and you can get the tutorial here.
This is what is called a red letter post. You may recall I mentioned that I was getting a site made for selling both my bags and bagmaking items. This is because I have been buying my components in bulk to save money but I often have to buy quite a lot. So I decided to sell on what I don't need for myself. So I'll be launching my shop today and to this end I'm also having a giveaway of a collection of bagmaking goodies and stuff. Firstly here's the giveaway:
A copy of September's Sew Hip magazine with my Pleated Hobo Bag pattern inside - plus -
A selection of bag making components: handles, frames, metal fittings, buckles, magnetic fasteners etc, - plus -
This lovely spotty bag. Ths bag is great as a nappy/diaper bag, toddler bag, shopping bag, or handy, roomy bag about town. Here's the view of the inside (you don't get these contents)
Finally, I thought I'd show you my latest make for Sew Hip. A wristlet that is spacious enough to take a normal day's essentials. It's in Amy Butler fabric and has a detachable wrist strap and a zipped closure.
