Really useful purses

I have been very busy lately, working away, a little production line on the go.  Remember I gave you a sneak peek of something I was working on with the wool felt? is what the 5 different coloured pieces of wool felt have become -

A pretty zip purse in 5 different shades of pastel wool felt.  Each one features 'button flowers' with rainbow thread stems. 

They are all fully lined with a contrasting fabric which also encloses the zip.  They measure approx 5" x 7" and are just the perfect size for....well, just about anything!

These 5 pretty purses are my first completed set of 'stock' for the craft fair I'll be attending in August. 

Also on the production line is bunting.  I'll be doing buntings featuring blues, pinks, reds, and some funky fabrics I got last week .....

Somehow, in amongst all this furtive sewing I managed to make a little something for myself. 

It's a cute little pouch for holding......

A couple of nappies and a packet of wet wipes! 

I've been meaning to make one for ages - just to pop in my handbag when we're just nipping.  My little fella is nearly 22 months and I rarely need all the stuff in the changing bag, so this little pouch is the perfect solution.  It's lined with a contrasting fabric, and is fully reversible -

Now, off to put my feet up and have a (little) break from sewing!
