Quick cushion

After making the bag for my daughter from the Hello Kitty fabric, I had a bit left over so asked her what she wanted.  She decided she wanted a little cushion or pillow to take to bed with her.  I made it really simple by using just the remainder fabric and a second spotty piece for the back.  I sewed it all up face to face and then turned it the right way round. I added stuffing and then for speed just sewed it up along the open seam.  My daughter definitely enjoyed it!

Hello Kitty Bag

My daughter loves Hello Kitty so I decided to get her some fabric to make her a little bag to carry her toys around in.

I adapted the previous design I had used to make a smaller bag which she could carry in her hand. I also decided that it would be better if I added a pocket on the inside rather than the outside so my daughter could see all the Hello Kitty design.  I therefore put the straps on the inside as well.

Large Bag

I made my first bag especially for someone else this weekend!  I was allowed to choose the material but it had to fit an A4 ring binder so I had to re-think all the sizes.  It was quite a challenge getting it right for someone else and trying to make everything straight, but I think they liked it.

Small shoulder bag

Had a go at a different bag today.  I found a website called which had a pattern for a small messenger bag.  It only took me the afternoon to make and I am really pleased with it!  I need to make something different now as I don't think I need that many bags!
