Handmade Monday No.?

Finished the school bag order for delivery on Monday, just glad have been making them piecemeal as no way could I have coped with 60 all at once. So what next had an order from a friend for some table mats got a sample of her curtain fabric from John Lewis and then had to ponder, should I go plain or slightly patterned. Now she is not much of a chintz gal so thought plain in toning fabrics to compliment the curtains quite happy with the result just hope she likes them, one problem ran out of insul bright made 5 out of the 6 now have to wait for a delivery!

UK Handmade bi monthly advertising is Glitz and Glamour so have to get my thinking cap on what to do, never work well to a theme preferring to go with the flow did  get back to the sketch book and come up with two ideas so far, white silk with a black chandelier with crystals. May also add the rose swan framed bag, also in white silk now what else.

  1. I like the colours of the place mats- very snazzy. The bag with the chandelier is lovely - looks very sophisticated. Gorgeous glamour-puss bag too. A week of lovely makes. Glad Shiloh enjoyed his birthday party. Hope you have a good week and fingers crossed for warmer weather (or at least less rain).

  2. I don't think that the place mats are very glitzy - I think she will loke them. I love the white bag with the chandeelier too. Well done on finishing the school bags. Have a good week :)
