An autumny finish

Laurabag18 Comments

It’s not autumn here – in fact, we’ve been having some lovely spring weather.  Just look at that blue sky! But for all of you in the Northern hemisphere, is there a fabric that says autumn more than this one of Tula Pink’s? I simply had to make another Arm Candy bag. I love my squirrels, but they don’t go with … Read More

I wasn’t going to show this little beauty until next month, but it’s TGIFF and it’s a finish and I’m pretty damn pleased with it! Erin at DogUnderMyDesk has just released the pattern for this  bag – it’s called Arm Candy and I’m reviewing it next month as part of PurseAPalooza… You’ll hear more about it and the pattern then. … Read More

Ghastly bag…

Laurabag5 Comments

It’s not deja vu … You haven’t seen this bag before. It just looks VERY like my laptop bag. I love the fabric combination on so much but I rarely use the bag… so in what is becoming tradition, I have made myself a bag for my France-Spain trip. Ooh la la! Here’s the inside lining with my trademark double zippy … Read More

The Jimmy bag

This is Jimmy. Jimmy Chew if we are being formal. Jimmy likes going to the beach, chasing other dogs and having random barking fits. Jimmy also likes liver treats which is very helpful for stopping him having random barking fits at the beach and chasing other dogs. He also likes Scarlett, who finds him fun but lumpy (as a pillow). … Read More

The Cocktail Kit(ty) Purse

A few weeks ago, I found out by surprise that an article I had submitted to Australian Patchwork and Quilting AGES ago (which I thought had been rejected) had been published. It was surprising that it was a surprise because I’m usually in close contact with Louise at the magazine when there’s an article in the offing. I emailed Louise to … Read More

Once upon a kindle case…

Being rather tired of great piles of books lying around that I never seem to get time to read and a couple of shopping vouchers which were burning a hole in my pocket, I finally gave in and got myself a Kindle Paperwhite. I am loving it. Some of my old favourite classics, like the Anne of Green Gables, What … Read More

Windows Bag: A few of my favourite things…

Laurabag0 Comments

Do you ever get obsessed and COLLECT?  Last year it was text fabric. Then I had a brief flirtation with ‘place’ fabric (particularly maps). Lately, it’s been shot cotton, for which I blame Lynne of Lily’s Quilts. My latest love has been sewing plastic, and I have a feeling a whole lot of zips may be arriving at my place … Read More
