Polyjuice First Aid Baggy

Hi everyone!
The bag is back! LOL... By now I'm sure some of you know that I love this pattern for a cute little bag. I must have made about 5 by now... although after this one I think I'm done for a while, I can manage the entire thing until I have to add the top to the bottom and that can take days. I'm on the hunt for a new bag pattern!

But not before finishing another long planned project. I tend to carry a first aid kit in my handbag. Nothing major, just ibuprofen, antihistamine, plasters, savlon cream, stuff like that. I used to have a teeny tiny pouch for it and everything except the cream fit in there. It was small, practical, but oh so ugly. So I needed a change, something that would hold the cream too. I'd bought some Harry Potter fabric years ago, like when I moved here years ago. The fabric was blue (so not my colour) but had polyjuice potion print so it was quite cute. Together with some fabric that I won somewhere, it had potential. And it worked! The last …

Cross Stitch WIP - Update

Hi everyone!
It's been two weeks since my last crafty post, oh my... But I've been busy, lots of projects that I'm working on and for the past two weekends I've been really focusing on my cross stitch project. Something I really wanted to continue tonight but I discovered a mistake that might be very annoying. Nothing major, but damage control needs to be done at the moment. 

So far, I've come this far:

 See, most of the moon has been done and I've started the house!
Now that there are so many colours I just kind of pick a colour and go with it so it's not all over the place. I'm out of brown for the tree so need to buy more there. That is also the damage control though, so let's see what happens with that... But other than that I'm quite impressed with my progress :)
Fingers crossed it won't be as bad as I'm currently thinking it is, but I'll keep you posted! Busy wave from London :)

Purple Mask Blackberry Case

Hello again everyone!
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Fabulising February projects :) As March has begun, I can start some projects from scratch again. I have a few ideas lined up so let's see how I'll get on in actually executing them ;) I finished one already!

But let me start by the beginning first...
Do you remember the cupcake pouch I made for the Blackberry phone a long time ago? A good few months ago, I realised that it was close to death and really needed to be replaced. So I made another one. This is the replacement I made at the time:

I used some of the fabrics planned for my Halloween quilt for this. I figured a few centimeters missing would not do any harm.
This is the other side. Very purple, very catty, and lined with fleece as usual.
For some reason though, this pouch did not stay in place very well, the layers kept getting separated when I pulled the phone out, and it was just generally annoying me. Until I finally decided that this really was not my bes…
