This and That

I haven’t been working on any challenges this week although I plan on working on some today but I have done a couple of other things

Here is a birthday card that I made for my brother-in-laws birthday yesterday using a digital download from Mo Manning, my trusty Copics and backing paper which was free with The Scrapbook Magazine.

I have also been doing some sewing this week using some fabric that I bought last year. First I made a skirt, here is a bad photo of  it  on the washing line and yes it does need ironing;

I also made a bag with the leftovers;

I made the bag using instructions that I adapted from www.morsbags.com. My friend Chris introduced me to Morsbags and the idea is to make cloth bags and reduce and eliminate plastic carrier bags not by buying fabric but by using off cuts, old curtains, old duvet covers etc. Making these bags has become quite an addiction in our group but it’s a good addiction!

Wow! You have been busy! I'm quite inspired to have a rummage through the odds box and see what I can come up with!
