I also showed you some of the fabrics I picked out for it, well, in the end I changed my mind a little, and these are actually the fabrics I used -
I am loving this multi-coloured heart print on the top, it's such a happy looking fabric, and it's nice to have something pretty to look at while you're working away :)
Here is how the finished art case looks -

I also got the chance to use one of my home-made labels for the first time. I sewed this one onto the back cover.
I think it's the perfect finishing touch!
Did you notice the letter 'L' was made out of my recently purchased wool felt? The squares I bought were only around 11" x 11" so I've really been trying to use them as economically as possible. I'm still working on the main project using them, but I'm determined to make as much as I can with the left over pieces too.
Our back door was replaced 18 months ago and up until this week we were still using the key with no key-ring attached! So....I had the bright idea to make a cute little key ring for it.
I made this one while I was sat watching tv last night. It turned out OK I think...? I may make a few more variations of key rings for the craft fair. I am going on holiday in a couple of weeks and will save up some hand sewing projects like this so that I can still make things while I'm away as I'll have plenty of time in the evenings.
