Lots of lovely new things!

I haven't posted for a while but I've got a lot of new things to share with you.

 Here's a photo of some drying owl t-shirts. I'd just finished painting them and when they dried I attached buttons for eyes.

 Another thing I've made recently is a bag. I dismantled an old suede jacket I was given to make it from. 

Here's some photos of the finished bag. I based the design on the satchel bags which are in fashion at the moment. The entire bag is made from reclaimed fabric and the fastener too. The only thing I bought especially for the bag was a reel of cotton. I used the pockets on the jacket at the front of the bag and the lining is made from an old pair of curtains.

The latest fimo animal I've made are hedgehogs. Earlier today an old friend on mine came to visit a stall I was doing and she brought her hedgehog mad friend along. She saw the turtles and asked for a hedgehog so when I got home I made these little guys. She's also been looking for a hedgehog duvet cover and pillow case so I've been commissioned to paint one of them so keep your eyes peeled for it arriving on here.

I love this journal cover I bought today made by KIRO-Arts. Its removable so when I've filled it up I can pop it on a new journal and start again. It's very well made and I'll be using this for years to come. The fabric is an original design.

Finally I'll bombard you with some photos of my most recent addition to my stall; earrings and some new charm necklaces I've made.
