The First Handbag :)

I plan on continuing to expand my range, to give myself a new challenge and to always have something fresh to offer my customers. I'd been hunting around for inspiration recently and decided that handbags will be my first addition to my collection. I sketched out a few rough plans for one style of bag and proceeded to cut. I know now why they always say measure twice, cut once. After a few hiccups, and a couple of miscuts later I have made my first prototype.

I've picked out the colour combinations for another 4 'Sweetpea Bags', and will be launching them for sale for the first time at Crafternoon Tea on the 12th December. These are super cute and I can't wait to make more.

Am working on another new product to add to the range this weekend too, so will put a blog up once the prototype is complete!


  1. Oh that is gorgeous!! I'll look forward to seeing those on the 12th.

  2. Thanks Kate :) Hopefully the punters will like them too!

  3. Loving the bag... I'm always looking for new things to create too - I bore easily!

  4. Aww shucks guys... I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out. Looking forward to cranking out some more. Have already had 2 orders for them!
