More fete - book bags!

G'day mates ;)

These are some of the letters that you saw in a post a couple of weeks ago....

Excuse the dark photo - I seem to leave taking photos til it is getting dark!

This is one of the eight (yes 8!) book bags that all those letters are now gracing! They look very cute, I think!

I used raw edge applique to sew the letters down, and the bags are seeded homespun. The idea came from somewhere in blogland, I can't remember where right now but if I come across the blog again I will let you know!

My creative space has been literally turned upside down this afternoon ....

We are finally doing some serious reno work on our house, it will take a while to get it all done (the list is long!) but I am very excited that we have taken the first step. So every now and then you will see some before and after pics.

As you can see I need to do some organising, things have gotten out of hand with all the fete sewing and now it has all been thrown in a pile in the middle of the room! I have my work cut out for me!

Be happy,

You are amazing; those book bags look fantastic!!! And good luck with the renovations. Always a trying time, but I'm sure well worth it in the end!
