Something for the boys!

By special request - the boys loved the little chocolate and pink bags but wanted something a bit 'boyish'. So when I saw this fabric, how could I refuse? Mini gift bags in funky Thomas the Tank Engine fabric lined with bright yellow. Fully reversible.

More Chocolatey goodness!

I've been doing some more sewing with my lovely chocolate fabric.
First, some chocolate aga pads. I think these would look good in any kitchen, traditional or modern!

Next I've teamed the chocolate with some funky bubblegum pink and made these little reversible bags - each one is just big enough to hold one large easter egg, or about 4 cadbury's creme egg sized eggs. These will be going to the easter craft fair at Barby on 29th March.

Easter - time for chickens and chocolate!

I haven't posted anything for over 2 weeks! You could be forgiven for thinking that I have been taking time off, but I haven't, I promise! Instead I am guilty of having too many projects on the go at once and subsequently nothing gets finished! But I have now finished some to show you, I promise I'll finish the rest off soon!
With Easter on the horizon my thoughts turn to chocolate (amongst other things!). I know it's not exactly recycled, but when I saw this fabulous chocolatey fabric I just couldn't resist. It's nearly as good as the real thing!
Easter Chicken Pot Holders:
I have lots more of this fabric so look out for some more chocolately themed projects coming soon!
As soon as I saw the tutorial for these dinky chicken pincushions, I had to put everything on hold and make them. Made from recycled fabric and using the log cabin patchwork technique, they stand only 3" high. I love them!
