my creative space: hoot!

Cutting lots of fabric - usually I tear the fabric I use for lining, and then snip away with this handy template!


Check out this fabric. Found in an op shop, I know it's rather hideously 80s, but the colours are perfect with my new Owl Forest orangey colourway! I kind of love using an overscale print in a tiny purse, it makes it a bit dreamy. And hooray for finding a way to reuse that fabric, amiright?

The owl purses have been flying out the door (pun very intended), so have been sewing a bunch more. The orange ones will be online soon.

A box of goodness delivered to lovely Bec at Little Shop Of!

Zippers! Hopefully this boxful will last until after the big C (that's Christmas to you & me).

Checkitout - lovely Shannon found me these gorgeous vintage fabrics. They're destined for lining more purses!
