Felt Crafting Fun

I gave hand-made Christmas presents to my family this year. It seemed like a great idea at the time but I was cursing myself when I was up til 4:30am Christmas Eve finishing them. I'm very glad I put the effort in though. I bought some natural coloured cotton drill fabric to make the bags and stitched on some bird shapes I cut from felt.

Grandma's Bag

Mum's Bag

I forgot to take a picture of the pigeon bag I made for my sister! 
I raided my Mum's craft supplies and got a little carried away on Boxing Day.

Owl Plushie and bird cut-outs.
Roast Turkey Leg and Strawberry Plushies

Why a roast turkey leg? It's actually a long story involving an episode of the Jonas Brothers Show and a bag I ordered from a Japanese website.

I'm currently trying to make a video on how I went about making the bags so hopefully when that is done I'll be able to include a basic How-to on here.
I had such a great Christmas! (Despite all the dreadful rain). Playing with sewing and playing with my beloved Kitties!!! I miss them so much!

Practise Fashion Shoot

I barely need an excuse to muck around with hair and outfits but now I actually have one! My fashion student friend needed someone to model her sewing creations. She's in the midst of rebranding but this is her current Etsy store. Here's a little sneak peak at the practise run we did today. I'm basically set for life with sweet facebook profile pictures.
She hired the lights and did the photography herself, then I tweaked them in photoshop. I can't wait for the next shoot!
The sailor bow is my creation.
