The first one was a Calorie Free Chocolates fabric totefor a friend who works for Chocoholics and needed a bag to carry all her catalogues etc to her parties, I'm really pleased with the bag as this fabric is gorgeous to look at and to work with and I tried out a new bottom technique and now my bags have nice firm bottoms, perhaps I should try it out on mine!!!!(hot iron and vilene- hmm not sure it's going to work!!!)
The second bag is for a secret santa so I'm having to stay stumm for who it's for...this one's made from a lilac unicorn fabric with silver detailingand I've added a grosgrain ribbon key fob with a little silver hand made with love heart - I do hope that whoever this bag is for loves it!!!
Finally, we have the builders in, about 18 months ago we had plans passed for a conservatory and have put off starting work for a variety of reasons, but last Wednesday Paul decided that work should start and has since spent the past few days on the phone arranging builders, bricklayers and supplies, we now up to ground level and its all starting to take shape. The kids had a competition running when the cement arrived as to which builder barrowed the most cement into the footing - Builder Darren won - his prize? digging out the footing for the porch!!!!

I think the school playground fabric works brilliantly with the green and the black and white polka dot ribbon on the handles was just a little extra touch. There's plenty of room for all Sarah-Jane's "stuff" as this bag measures 21" across the top, 16" across the bottom and 15" deep with a gusset (bottom) of 5". I've added lots of internal pockets for pens, mobiles phones and keys. There's also a small extrnal pocket cleverly stiuated in between the handles.
Sarah- Jane hasn't seen it yet and I'm taking it up to school this afternoon so I hope she likes it.....
Now onto the next custom order.......
A chocolates fabric tote and money apron for Nicky.....

This is what it says on her blog -
"To celebrate the birth of my baby girl Mylie I am hosting a gigantic give away!!!It will also mark put us back on track after our "give away holiday" because of moving and the birth.We are collaborating with many other companies & crafters to bring you the biggest give away ever!!! So if you want to enter, keep checking our blog for updates!We will be posting the items that are to be included as they arrive!!"
So I decided to make a nappy holder in this really cute retro baby fabric and even tried out the button holer on my latest sewing machine! I took the photos before I did the button hole but it went like a dream and I added a large white button.
There's plenty of room for two nappies and a pack of travel wipes and a couple of nappy bags too! And it could even be used later on when you need to carry spare pairs of knickers and pants for those "Mum, I can't wait any longer!" "oops I did it!" moments.
Obviously with a workshop full of fabric (and I mean bursting at the seams full!) you can choose your own fabric design colour etc and it doesn't have to have a baby theme, if you would like your very own nappy pouch then please just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org they cost £5.95 plus p&p.
And don't forget to follow Monica's Blog to take part in the Mother & Baby Mega Giveaway when it starts!

right I off for a lie down in a dark room - Goodnight X
GRRRRR!!! nearly did get my knickers in a twist with the twitter feed but think I'm there now!!!
We visited Illfracombe, Clovelly, Bude and Hartland Quay - we didn't make it to Bideford but maybe next time!!!
Hubby wants to go back as he liked the area so much - just wish we were a bit closer as it took 7 hours to get there and 7 hours to get home!!!
Rachel and Jack thoroughly enjoyed body boarding at Bude and Tompom had his first taste of sand and I mean literally had his first taste of sand!!!
