What's been made in November?

Wow, is it really that long since my last post??  I realised I had been spending far too great a portion of my time at the computer, getting lost in blogland, drooling over the things other people are making, that actually I wasn't spending as much time sewing... and the Christmas make-it list is piling up!.

So, here I am back again, to show the fruits of my creations, while sitting at the sewing machine rather than the computer.

Do good things come in three's???

These little draw string bags can be found at Jeni's blog... aren't they just super.  These have been made with some fabric I won on ebay, and an old pillow case, and old dress!

And ............

Not a great photo, but the tutorial for these is by Flossie Teacakes.  And last night, my friend's 12 year old daughter came round for an evenings sewing with me, and she was absolutely thrilled to bits to make one of these in an evening.  When she exclaimed "I love it more than my Jack Wills purse" I knew just how pleased she was with herself - and like me, this was her first sewing of a zip making one of these.....   
Or fours????

I have gone beserk on these scraptastic tote bags (Made from an old pair of curtains, an old flowery bed sheet and using up scraps)

The tutorial for these can be found here

So, here is a round up of November's makes.  It doesn't look much when I think of how many hours I have put in.

And, to give you a giggle..... I also made Hope's nativity outfit last night - ingenious pattern I made up myself out of an old pillow case.  (If enough of you are interested I might just write a tutorial, he he!!!)


  1. Yay! They turned out so cute! :)

  2. You have been busy! And the nativity costume looks great!

  3. Wow bag galore! Some super fab crafting.
