Wow everyone! I'm really impressed. Smiley
Somehow I've actually had a social life the last month! So done no crafting. Beginning to get nervous as I have no idea about what to buy anybody.

Going to get on with things soon hopefully, assignments at university are beginning to pile up and I'm feeling awfully last minute Wink

Such a change...

This is actually my new school year resolution anyway! So great that there's a craft-along too.

I pledge that I shall try and make at least part of everybody who would appreciate it's present this Christmas. And make small presents for more distant friends, and part of presents for closer family and friends.

I made my best friend an embroidered pillow in August, along with a satchel.

But since september :
Best friend from secondary schools birthday 29th Sept - made her some bunting for her new uni house

Thanks guys ^.^
The green kind of took over because it was at the crown, in future I'd make the yellow section larger and reduce the green Cheesy
Get a lot of looks too :p

Lovely bag! I bet your friend is over the moon with it  Grin

Thank you!

I think she liked it, Smiley she didn't immediately realise that it was hand made which is always a good thing! And my main worry (that the magnetic closure wasn't perfectly placed) looks fine once there's stuff in the handbag, which is always good Cheesy

Love the star design, nicest undercut design I've ever seen!

I finally got around to doing my rainbow hair Smiley Took me about an hour start to finish, but I did have to mess around getting the placement right ( not enough hair!) I did red, orange, yellow, green and purple, Indigo always seemed a bit confusing and I figured the rest of my hair was blue so I missed those out. I left the dyes in for about 4-5 hours (conditioning veggie dyes, all by directions [except the purple which was a mix of two by manic panic, but that was just because I wanted them gone. and the green which was a stargazers one I've had forever.)



And from the side, this photo is just after waking up so it's not flattering, but shows the colour placement

I made this bag for my best friends birthday, it has a zippered pocket in the back, a front pocket and a divider in the main compartment with a pocket (which is edged with piping covered in the outer fabric Smiley )



The outer fabric is a type of paisley-ish cord, it closes with a magnetic closure, and has D rings on either side to make the strap more comfortable (she often wears her bags diagonally across her) and I used ready made webbing because the cord had a bit of stretch to it and I figured it'd be more difficulty than it was worth Smiley

And this is a photo of the lining



I folded the front pocket and pressed it in place to make it so there wasn't a seam on it, I thought that it looked better that way. The entirety of the paisley fabric is interfaced with a medium weight interfacing, the divider is also interfaced, and then sewed inside out so there were fewer seams on show.

The fabric was about £3.90 for a metre, I've still got some left from that though, the pink was an old pillowcase (lovely soft cotton though) the webbing was about 0.30-0.50 pence per metre and I got 1.5 (but only used probably 1-1.2, can't remember)
I didn't use a pattern, I just sketched what I wanted and winged it.

Thanks for looking
Smiley
