Feeling guilty for only now uploading photo's of my beautiful bag from our wonderful organiser!! Also having seen the amazing bag felicitybaby made for Sevs - I have even MORE anxiety than I already did - and this bag was one of the FEW pieces of my own work I WAS proud of!!!! Hmmmm - just hope you like it when it arrives felicity - and apologies again for being so very very late sending!
Anyhow without further ado onto pictures of my fabulous package from Sevsonlygirl - thank you SO much!!!!
First of all everything - I got the bag (I can't tell you how much I love this or how 'me' it is...but will say a bit more in a minute!) a wonderful paintbrush wrap - I'm wondering if I put on my questionnaire that I wanted one - I don't paint pictures but I paint things (clay, wooden boxes etc) and had been thinking for a couple of weeks I could do with a wrap to keep these in - and that is not a lie or an exageration! A lovely painted blue box with an amazing sewing tool collection in it! Having only recently started sewing this was PERFECT for me - especially the magnifying tweezers - I have NEVER seen anything like that before - but I am also learning to become more advanced in my jewellery/ beading work and have already put these to use both in finding loose threads on sewn objects - and picking up small beads from multiple designs! PERFECT
the kit also contained the most awesome travel sewing set I have ever seen - honestly there is nothing like that over here in England - I should have got a photo of that, but it was in my pile of things to go in my bag when I had taken photos - and got missed unfortunately! There was a book which I can not wait to read, it looks amazing - and lastly a purple plastic tube thing with a lid for me to store ejuice in. This sounds like I have made it up - but it is honestly true -a few days after getting the parcel I popped my ejuice in the tube and got in the car for a journey to visit my cousin, half way there I realised I needed to fill up my ecig - and got the tube out - the ejuice bottle (for the first time ever!!!) had leaked lots and there was a good few centimetres of juice in the bottom of the tube - how glad am I that I had it? Especially as before I'd just put the bottle loosely into my bag!!!!!
so - onto gushing about the bag - you have been warned lol!!!! I wanted a messenger style bag that had an over the body strap - as I come up in massive welts if I have pressure on something so over the body distributes the weight better (although I have already reacted to it - but that was cos I was carrying a bottle of water in it - lesson learnt!) so Sevs made a lovely long strap to it. I told her purple was my favourite colour and the colour I'd love a bag to be- but that was about it, so when I opened this bag I felt she had been spying on me. When I showed it to mum her reactions was "purple, stars, sparkly, it's very YOU isn't it!" and indeed - it is very very me! Thank you so much Sevsonlygirl - I LOVE it!!!!
here is a pic of the bag closed, and another of it open showing the matching but black lining! I SO want some of the purple fabric for myself to use! The closed picture is the best at showing the true colour of the bag
I didnt seem to get a pic of the paintbrush roll by itself for some reason - sorry about that it will be so useful though and of course - I love the fabric!!!
LAstly a pic of the lovely blue box that contained my sewing kit - and which will continue life as a sewing kit box!
and to finish - here's a photo of all three of my crafted items. B
