I'd never used purse frames before but I am definitely ordering some! It was so quick and the finished item looks so smart.
I have a stash of half yards of Echo, not the complete collection but quite a pile. I haven't cut into it at all yet, still searching for the 'right' pattern. It's such beautiful fabric. Very different to most fabric I've seen (and let's face it, I spend alot of time researching!).
This little zip up bag has pleats along the front, it is from my new book 'Bags A Modern Collection' which I wrote about in my last blog. I think my combination of fabrics doesn't show it off very nicely, I love both of them but they are too busy together here. Also my zip ends are not crisp, you would think after all this time of using zips I would get it right but I still have zip issues from time to time!
A quick photo of a heat bag that I made my Dad. I love making heat bags, but as we have a mouse problem here in town it is wise to use up all the wheat that you buy as soon as can rather than have it sitting around. So I made this using some cheap drill, lining it with flannelette to help keep it warmer for longer. I had to make it it a bit cute so added a 'wise old owl', from an Alexander Henry print that has lots of these sweet guys to choose from.
