I HAVE A PAPER DOLL TO CALL MY OWN!
Paper Doll FABRIC that is!!! My wonderful prize arrived in last nights mail - here is how it looked when I opened the parcel.
I've since opened it up and all of the fabric is so lovely! I can't wait to make something with it. It's called "Paper Doll Christmas".
As promised, the first thing I will make is a bag for a CHRISTMAS GIVE-A-WAY. So keep your eye out for a give-a-way announcement very soon:-)
This is the latest bag I have made. It's a pattern by Rebeka Lambert from artsy-crafty babe patterns. This is a fun bag to make - I will be taking it to the Craft Show tomorrow and most probably will fill it up! Right now it has the Breast Cancer Bags in it to deliver at the show.
Rebeka designed the bag with re-purposing in mind..... she suggests using vintage sheets (I'll be keeping my eye out for them at the local thrift shops now!) You need around 2 1/2 yards of fabric - I was lucky to have a piece of antique fabric in my stash. That's the green floral I have used for the outside of the bag. It's very old fabric and I think this bag pattern is just perfect for it. On the inside I used a piece of batik type fabric which has been in my stash for years so I was very happy to find a use for it at last. The bag is completely reversible, so the batik look will be nice for the beach. (sorry, forgot to take a pic of the inside!)
