a preschool bag for my boy

my son started preschool this year.... so i made him a little bag to take his lunchbox and water bottle in.

he loves dinosaurs, so drew a few on a piece of plain calico with a textile marker, and he coloured them in using fabric crayons.

i found the pattern for the bag in a great book i have on my bookshelf called sewing for boys. there is a helpful website here for this book too

I love bags.... its even better making them.

:: have you ever made a bag of your own or for someone else?

House & Garden magazine feature

my apple mac linen cushion was selected by the House & Garden Stylist for inclusion in a fruity feature of their March ed.

it came about through me listing a shop on a great new online market place called down that little lane . 

Check them out on FB here and the Blog here.... (...and if you like what you see apply! ((you must apply as this market place is full of unique and top quality items)) ... & yes, they are currently looking for new shop sellers... )

Tessa, the lady behind this new market place was contacted by the H&G stylist who had selected out of all the amazing products - my cushion! 

yippee..... free advertising and its quite exciting seeing my BIRCHseed stuff in a mag :) 

:: i would love to hear if your goods have been featured in a magazine/s
