My Creative Space


I've finished off a couple of little projects this week, and the next things in my creative space are just in the planning stages.

First on the list is a custom camera bag for Michelle from Leni and Rose.

Michelle has sent through some lovely fabric, and detailed instructions of what she requires for her camera. So today, I get to play around and draw sketches and work out how to construct it.


While at Sewjourn on the weekend, Liesl was testing Nikki's brand new Beret Pattern. I absolutely adore beret's and after trying it on I was hooked..... so now I have grand plans to whip up my very own too.
There are beret's popping up everywhere it seems!

Don't forget to visit the hostess with the mostest to play along too!

Love your fabric colours!
That is it, I see this beret pattern everywhere too, looks like Nikki is converting the nation to art of making and wearing beret "et parler Français"!! hehehe;)

The Beret is such a lot of fun. I can't wait to see yours.

Liesl said...

Love the fabric you're going to use for the camera bag - can't wait to see what goes where. Have fun with the beret pattern (and you know its not finished unless at least 6 other people try it on, right?)

Sally said...

Yes ... I love a good beret too.
Good luck with the camera bag - not that you need it - looking forward to seeing it when it is all done. Take care.

I remember Michelle not being sure which fabric to choose ... and I love what she's picked. Definitely me ... although I wouldn't be able to resist a little red in there too! I can't wait to see what she wants. PS We'l miss you tonight.
