More fabric and sewing

Today I eased myself back into sewing again after my 2 week break and made these little make-up bags :) I just love this tutorial and the fabric is FAB too lol. I am hopeing to do a craft fair back in Norfolk in August so will have to have a think on what to take with me (and get sewing lol)

This bag is called Belle, like the Amelie ones I have been making but a bit bigger and has a top band. This is for my lovely Aunt in Norfolk, I was going to put one long strap on it so it went over her body but I forgot and just followed the pattern :( I hope she won't mind.

I used black cotton for the outer fabric and a vintage rose for the lining and pockets, one side of the pockets is black so she can find them lol and I also added a key holder as my Aunt wanted a bag for her work stuff.
Now I have some lovely new fabric to make some of those craft items :)

The Moda jelly roll was free when I subscribed to Popular Patchwork magazine and the Moda vintage rose fabric beside it was an end of roll bargain from the lovely Quilting shop in Cromford Mill (fast becoming my fav place) I get lots of advice from the lovely owner. Walking into the shop is like all birthday's and christmas' rolled into one also being a kid in a sweet shop and finding Aladin's cave lol. I could not resist the cute pattern's either :)

These are the last of my fabric treats for this week (until my very special fabric arrives from Ebay lol) I love the Michael Miller fabrics also loving bright zinggy fabric at the moment.

I still love my roses though :)
