happy birthday

It's my friends birthday in a couple of weeks, so I thought it was a great excuse to experiment with my new sugar and spice designer paper. I like the colour scheme, but as my 6 year old niece and husband pointed out - it looks like a ship! I was hoping to achieve a topsy turvy cake.  

I thought maybe adding another tier? Also not keen on the flame either - any suggestions?

cupcake shoulder bag

As it was my nieces 6th birthday today it was a great excuse to design and make a new shoulder bag.  I made the cupcake on the front of the bag into a pocket and included a press stud.

bags of fun

With a little extra time on my hands I decided to make a quick fabric handbag.
I chose corduroy for the outer bag and polycotton for the lining. I also added a lined adjustable handle and patch pocket. I think the fastening tab and button finishes the bag off nicely and adds more security (with the user in mind.)
I machine stitched the bag, including the button hole.
