Little Purses

Thank you for all your comments about our Night of the Museums adventure!  Have you all booked up your flights to Düsseldorf for next year’s event???  I heard from a friend this week that some of the zoos around here do similar night-time events.  I’m sold!!!  I’ll be looking them up as soon as I’ve finished writing this post....

On to crafting.....  Last week, I was mostly making little purses.  I love making them!  They’re pretty quick, pretty easy, and just plain old pretty!

Here are a few of my favourites:

I just can’t seem to shake off my obsession with spotty fabrics!!!  Have you noticed???

Are you more diverse in the prints you use?  Or, like me, do you have a particular favourite?  Do you like spots too, or stripes, checks, florals, plains.....?

I’m looking forward to HEAPS of crafting this week.  We have Thursday and Friday off school – yippeeeeeee!!!!!

Hope you have a good (and crafty) week.....




  1. My favourite colour is green, and I have a thing for Polka dots!!! So i love the first picture :)

    I do tend to wear a lot of polka dots, but with crafting I tend to go in phases, so spend a few weeks using polka dots, then a few weeks using stripes! Then try and use up the left overs!!

    Happy Thursday and Friday :) X

  2. The blue spotty one is divine! I really love the labels with them - little touches like that make all the difference x

  3. Oh my!!! ADORBABLE! I love them all; you are so good at pairing patterns and colors.. and picking the tags to go with them.. and the buttons! I think it's the simple shape that really makes it too!

    Enjoy your crafty days this week!!

  4. Oh I know how you feel - I love pretty much most fabrics that are spotty. Lovely purses,

  12. LOVE the purses!! I wish I could sew that neatly!!!
    I definitely have a thing for polka dot and spotty fabric but my all-time fave is probably floral... But then they all go so well together don't they?... That's maybe why I adore patchwork so much!!!
    Happy crafting Carly

  13. Love those purses, I too can't get enough of spotty fabric, well any fabric actually, but especially spotty!
