spring craft bags and purses

well I've been having major attacks of craftiness lately, the weather has been unseasonably beautiful here in Ireland all the flowers are blooming, I took some nice photographs, and interestingly when I took this one and looked at it closely I noticed two aphids trysting in the centre, what a place for a date!



with sunshine it seemed a shame not to do some tie dying , here's a photo trying to catch the colours of the sunset with the colours of the tie dye.


I have been making a lot of bags lately, but they have all been for swaps on craftster.org, so I decided it was time to make myself some, this one was made out of fabric that I received in a swap package, it was only 1/4 yard but I just managed to squeeze this little bag out of it.

This bag is for a swap, the fabric is reversible so I swapped around the central panel for contrast and added the riveted and bead detail to the front

This is more fabric I got in a swap, I love it! My girly pin-up bag!




I was looking in the Avoca handweavers shop fell in love with a very pretty skirt, but an insane price, so I made myself this version, with a matching bag.

That photo of the tie dye drying with the house in the background (the first one) would be amazing framed. I love it!!!
