A couple of small things..

Just a couple of small things I've done this week.  After receiving my book 'In the life of a bag' by Anni Downs, I just had to make something from it.  So I whipped up this lipstick case in no time at all. 

Cute isn't it - and usefull!  Very easy to make and will make a great mother's day present.(hope your not looking mum!)  I'll have to make a few more of those.   I also did this little applique on a top for my daughter - as it's her birthday next week.

The design is by Kellie Wulfsohn from 'Don't look now!' and is done using raw edge applique.  The original design was for a cushion and was in Homespun magazine (Vol 11.12) so I decided to reduce the size and put it on a long sleeve top.

Happy sewing everyone!
