Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

My niece, Camilla, has been visiting us the last couple of days. It's been so nice, it's not often that someone from my home town comes to stay. I decided to make her a bag and I used this cool Japanese fabric with tiny pandas on.
Det er en enkel veske, lagde ikke så mange detaljer på den, men sydde en lomme inni med strikk øverst til å ha mobiltelefonen i. Lukking med en liten bit borrelås.
It's a simple bag, I didn't make many details on it, but I made a pocket with elastic band for the cell phone. Used a small piece of velcro to close the bag.

I've purchased a necklace custom made for me, with the names of my sons and their father. I really like these personalized necklaces a lot, so I was very happy when I found this online shop, Stamped Under the Moon.

One more bag using Anne Sand's tutorial! I did the bottom of the bag correct this time, so the size is as planned, made the straps a bit longer on this one.
Inside there's a pocket with a zipper on one side... ↓
... on the other side a pocket with elastic band for the cell phone. ↓
These tiny split rings are great for attaching charms to zippers!

Now with spring just around the corner, it's time for the kids to play with the marbles again. :o) Johan wanted a new bag for his marbles, and I was more than willing to make him one. I had seen this great tutorial by Timotei, and now I tried it out. But I didn't make a pocket on the front, I just decorated with a piece of fabric and a funny monster.

This weekend I decided to sew a bag like Anne Sand made in this → great tutorial. ← Thought of it as a practice on bag sewing, and that was a good thing, because I messed it up! I've never before sewn these kind of "corners" in the bottom of a bag, I managed to sew wrong and cut wrong before I noticed it! ;o) So I had to cut 10 cm off the bag, but I didn't give up, I finished it despite of the fiasco - as I said, it was a practice - and now I know how to sew these corners!
Jeg sydde en lomme inni vesken,
festet en hjerte-charm på glidelåset.
I made a pocket inside, added a heart charm to the zipper.
Added a "string" to hang the key ring on.
