Finished some custom orders last night.  First is a baby quilt with the cute little babies name on it.  I used Riley Blake fabrics cut up into different size strips.  Quilted with an all over stipple on this one. 

The other custom order is this cute little girls bag and matching zipper purse.  These bags are great for keeping the little one's busy while out shopping or out for dinner.  Use it to hold colouring books, toys or use it for library books.  The zipper purse can be used to hold pencils, crayons or hair ties and brushes.  Lots of uses here.   

Now that they are out of the way I'm off to work on my next custom order.  A personalised name cushion for an Essendon fan.  I've been told to only use black and red fabrics and anything to do with Essendon Football Club. 

Have a great week.

Recently a lovely lady who's blog I have been following bought a few fabrics off me.  And how funny is this after she received my package and saw my address she emailed me and told me that she used to live just around the corner from me about 6 years ago.  It made me laugh and think that we may have crossed paths at our local supermarket or even on the street.  What a small world.  She has used the fabrics to make some gorgeous items and I love those cute little dolls.  Go and see them here.

I also caught up with some other blogger friends last weekend at The North Melbourne Craft Market.  Natasha from Artistic Creations by Natasha Burns.  I bought some of her cute cupcake cards and Julia bought a cupcake plaque for her bedroom. 

I also met Alison from Alison by the Bay.  She was selling her gorgeous handmade jewellery.

It was great catching up and I hope the market went well for them.

I've been busy working on custom orders and I did manage to make something for my shop.

It started with Julia wanting me to make her a pencil case and this is what I came up with. 

I have one listed in my Etsy shop and also in my Madeit shop.  It can also be used as a makeup purse or a purse to hold all the bits and bobs floating around in your bag.  Pencil cases for boys coming soon.

You can see more photos on my Flickr.  The link is on the right side of my blog.

Have a great weekend.
