Dotty Dog- Bag

This is one of the latest bags I have ventured to make and finally finished today! 
I made very similar ones of with pastel birds in bird cages and dots.

I ordered the dotty material especially for these bags, however, youngest child decided to 'make' something and cut a huge chunk out of the lovely dotty material (from the middle no less).  A very expensive day!  Managed to salvage some of the dots and this is the result.  Material is now under lock and key with a special child friendly pile in case a creative moment hits the kids.

Front - pocket lined with doggy print


This bag is fully lined and has a doggy print internal pocket and also a small 'phone' size pocket on the outside.  This is because I struggle to find my phone in any bag I own.

This should be on the Kids 'makeydo' page however, it was a joint effort.

The hearts are appliqued onto material. 

It is called 'Thinking Hearts' but youngest child named it and I am not sure what it means.

This is now framed ready to go into the Craft Shed.

Pretty Pendants

Whilst waiting for the Craft Shed to be finished, I have concentrated on making some more pendants as they were very popular last Christmas.  These are more colourful and have either a matching glazed tin to hold the pendant or a pretty matching envelope.
These will be put for sale at my next Craft fair nearer Christmas.
