quilted bag

i've had this really quirky cute fabric for ages and it's been earmarked for a bag- but i could never get the perfect pattern. so since i had my machine out for other jobs i decided to bite the bullet and make my own design- i've seen very small bags online but nothing the size i wanted(i like a big bag i can get all my junk into)
i'm pleased with how it's turned out- it will be better once it's washed as the quilting will show up

ribbon rose

Wedding card commision i made- loved the subtle colours
cheap canvas from poundland, bit of stamping and sponging. i used just believe and vintage vogue (2 of my all time favorite sets) and i made a ribbon rose using the heating tecnique- i love watching it curl up in the heat

close up of ribbon rose- i wrapped ruffled up seam binding round the edge to fluff it up a bit

button canvas

i spotted a button canvas on etsy and decided to make my own, the lady used a plain white canvas but it was too white against my cream walls so i have stamped using the en francais stamp in Baja Breeze and i daubed shimmer paint around before adding the buttons(subtles). i have a pile of canvases in the cupboard so i'll be ordering more buttons
