I've been on a mad sewing craze in the last few months and here's 3 products of that. I tend to make up things as I go along which is fun but the amount of times I've had to unpick seams because I didn't think before I started sewing... grrrr. These are all made using the same pattern (made by me, woot).

This first one was the easiest to make and seems to be a hit with my mates.


Love this fabric - Mexican day of the dead skeleton celebration. Can't really tell in the photo but it has a bottom so can stand by itself, I shoved a piece of thick card in for stability.


For the next two I decided to use this extra extra extra heavy interfacing which was a really bad idea and made me swear lots. Like trying to make a bag out of cardboard.

Luckily I had enough of this fabric to make a skirt as well - it's so pretty! I used the same pattern but made the top part a bit bigger to show off more of the pretty fabric. The bottom part is from a charity shop jacket.


And lastly Gone with the Wind, the person on ebay had named the fabric and it kinda stuck when I was making it. I stole the handle from a bunch of stuff my sister gave me when she moved.

Thanks for your comments Cheesy

I got the skeleton fabric from ebay.co.uk (which is where I get most of my funky fabrics). All the good fabric sites end up wanting to charge me the same amount on postage as the items, sometimes I wish I lived in America.
