I have made something a bit different for this hop, the theme is anything goes so I thought what shall I make? Should I do something I've done before and I'm comfortable making? should I keep it simple? or should I do somethin totally out of my comfort zone and that I have never made before? and should I decide to do that just the day before the hop?

Of course you just know I did lol!





I got my sewing machine out and I made me a bag/pouch to keep my markers in when I am on the move.

I started with a piece of fabric from my massive fabric box, I used the sewing maching to put it together so it sort of resembled a bag. The stitches are terrible, not only can't I not cut a straight line I can't sew in one either! When I had stitched it all I added some lace and the fabric flower which is a broach that I made a while ago. Although my stitches aren't exactly pretty they are doing their job and holding the whole thing together nicely. To finish it off I coloured in the Rusalka stamp from smeared ink and stuck it to the front with a bit of lace to frame it.

I do hope you will check out what everyone else has made for this hop.
