Upcycled bag

Can't believe where time has gone to this last few weeks. Completely stacked out with work and family. The website launch is coming closer and not everything is sorted. Pro photography is scheduled for Wednesday, so we'll be further on then. 

It was gone 02.00hrs before I got to bed last night and urgh, I felt grotty this morning. I'm not cut out for late nights. But I did get to spend the evening with a wonderful friend and we played in her office with a mahooosive stash of fabric and sewing paraphernalia...more in another post, chilling out and listening to our rock hero Jim Morrison.

So I finished off this week's make: an upcycled bag from an old pair of jeans and some fabric that I had imported from Hong Kong. I fully lined the inside and thought about more fancy bits, but seriously, I had no time to faff!

 I made this little scrunched-up flower but it was just too heavy to sit properly on the bag

 So I fashioned this instead, on a brooch fastening

 Hopefully I will get to blog more this next few days :)

Aye that's grand lass. Was going to have a go at this too, inspired by one of the crafty mags I've read recently but I've gone and eBayed me jeans ;)
