secret stuff part 1

these are some of the things I had been working on before Christmas (orders)
below is a large flower hairclip,
very easy to make...found the tutorial through Google
(sorry can't remember the name...just google fabric flowers? i think)

another one found online,
also easy to make, and look great as a brooch...

these are the things I made for my friend Desley, for her daughter for Christmas...
hope she liked them....
as I made each item, there were a few little persons saying how much they would like them!

a close up of the bag....turned out a little different than planned, but good all the same,
quite long, sits nicely and a great size for shopping.


back with more soon!
