Handmade Shopping

I just remembered I haven't shown you my purchases/swaps from the last few weeks!  This retro cushion from The Devonport Craft Market is for the girls. One of whom was really into outer space until very recently (she's now into forensic science!).

These adorable sock monkeys are from Sarah at Cotton Kiwi.
They have been kept under wraps for xmas pressies.

A very cool market bag,

and fabric scraps from the lovely Nic at Yardage Design.
{loving those exclamation marks!!}

Also just arrived in the post from Melbourne, this gorgeous fabric from Curlypops!

and ... something I just had to get myself for christmas...

This amazing handbag made from vintage linen retro fabric,

 lined with vintage sheeting! The handles are so soft - I'm over the moon with it! Thanks so much Cam!

See you in the New Year sometime!X

Yippee! I'm so glad that it all arrived safely over the ditch.
Hope you have a very merry and fabulous christmas - isn't it great to do a little handmade shopping for oneself?

Oh, that bag is just the best! I love the fabric on the inside. Cam has a wonderful eye and a marvellous talent for sewing.
