My little great-nephew Lachie requested A REALLY BIG ARTIST FOLDER! He already has two small ones, each made in fabric of his choosing. This time he said "Hey Aunty Hen, can you make me a REALLY BIG ONE in Avengers fabric?" Well, what's Aunty Hen to do but search the internet, buy the fabric and invent her own pattern for a REALLY BIG ONE!
I added an extra pocket behind the zoom-crayons and found three Scholastic story books all about The Avengers!
Next up... my little sweethearts... Bridget and Chloe (great-nieces). I had it in my mind that I wanted to make them "Beauty Bags" so most of this week I have been working on these....
|I made both bags exactly the same!|
|The only difference - the zipper pulls!|
(I invented these with some jewellery charms from Spotlight)
|Inside the bag (sorry, too much flash). Pockets on each side to hold all the lip gloss and eye shadow etc.|
or maybe they will be filled with Barbie clothes and dolls!
I love to sew for the little people in my life and anything I have made for them has always been well received and appreciated. When I was growing up, homemade presents were the norm and usually came in the form of new Christmas shorts and bikinis (as I grew older) or perhaps a new pillowslip or sundress. I always LOVED these things, because my Mum had made them for me. It makes me happy that my little people also love the things I make for them.
Gosh, Christmas Day is fast approaching! I'll come back with some piccies of my Xmas decorating (nothing too exciting!) ....
Cheers from Helen
..Fred just had his three days of chemo, so thankfully he gets Christmas week off. He's pretty sick with this lot so laying low and relaxing at tv.
