Super sweet crochet book! I love this, it's cut strips of fabric tied together to make the yarn, I can't wait to make something! Think a hat is the first I'll make.
Here's Spoon, it's the April edition, I didn't love the new edition so I decided to go with this one. I love this model she's adorable and so versatile in her looks. So many cute outfits, accessories and I love the section on Kokeshi dolls.

Last week I designed and made this little cross shoulder bag. I love all woodland creature real and mythical, so I decided that I would love a jackalope on a little zippered bag. I hand sketched the drawing on the bag then machine embroidered it, definitely not my finest sketch but I like it looks like a ball point sketch. The shell is cotton canvas. I used a vintage crochet doily from the stash I bought on Ebay a few weeks back for the applique. Also, lovely vintage beads from Tinsel Trading, a vintage yellow metal zipper from my vintage notions stash. Sweet mini dot bumblebee lining which I bought in Tokyo. And the shoulder strap is a beautiful piece of leather I've been saving. This bag tutorial will be in my next craft zine.
