Finished a few more orders.  The first was a custom order for a personalised name cushion with an Essendon Football Theme.  I was told to only use red and black.  I found the perfect red and black stripe in my stash and used red for the background and black for the letters.  I used fabric from a Pillowcase for the back.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I hope the new owner approves. 

Next up is a bag and zipper purse I made for Julia's teacher for her birthday.  Julia chose the fabrics.  Cute birdies and red polka dots, too cute.  I had the A+ teacher button in my stash and Julia wanted to put the teachers initials on it which we found at Spotlight.  Her teacher loved it. 

Next is a bag I made for a friend.  She requested red and paisley.  I found the red fabric on Etsy and I had the stripes in my stash.  I love how this turned out it has that vintage look about it.  I think I will be making one of these for myself.

School holidays are here again.  I took a week off work and I will be busy entertaining the kids and hopefully doing more sewing. 

Have a great weekend.
