Recent Crafty Sensations!

To say I have been itching to show you this first project is a mahoosive understatement! 

I came up with the idea of sewing a liner for the lid not long after buying the suitcase for the knockdown, bargain price of £8 on this trip out junkin'.

It has taken a while and one reason for that is I didn't want to cut into any of my fabric stash and was trying to use scraps. Well, with the help of some fabric donations from the lovely Little Bohemian Butterfly I have finished this labour of absolute love; I squealed with excitement when I held it up against the case to see if it looked as good as I hoped it would - and it does!!

So here is the before picture...

and here with great excitement is the finished article, with close ups!

I am so very pleased with it, as I think you can tell.

Next up is something I have just not got round to re-jigging but now this is done, too. I bought this little straw hat for 75p from a charity shop to use as a summer decoration. Again this has been fixed with a donation of fabric and I have pinned the chiffon-like scarf fabric onto the hat and draped the tiny beading around it. I really like it and because of the size it will probably fit on the mantle along with the bunting I recently made to go up for summer, so here it is -

And finally, I am looking at trying out new mediums for my crafting and just seeing what I can come up with. This is a small piece of mounting board, 2 x 2 inches, which I have covered with some fabric, added a co-ordinating brad and used some distress ink on the edges to age it a little. Not sure what I will use it for but love it anyway! Take a look!

I do hope you like my crafty sensations? I feel sensational finishing my suitcase and trying new things.

Thanks for stopping by, tell your friends and catch ya later!xx
