Just had to make a few more of these little zip purses… sooooo easy and fun to make!

God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise—He can be depended on], and God wants you to know His son, Jesus Christ”

1 Corinthians 1:19 (That’s one of the books of the Bible towards the end, and it is chapter 1 and verse 19… just so you can find it).

I thought this would make a nice gift for a girlfriend who knows and loves God.

Its been years since I made these little tissue packs. I saw a reasonable size packet of tissues in a shop and thought they would be fun to make, quick and easy.  I searched on You Tube and found heaps of little demonstrations, and downloaded a pattern (yes a pattern!) because I had never made them lined before.  And in effect lining them made them so much easier to make and tidy.  It was also fun mixing two fabrics together, and using the flowers from one of my husbands old (clean) shirts (that had shrunk in the wash!).

I found quite a few stunning doilies at an opshop in Te Puke recently and so purchased them thinking I must be able to use them for something.  I looked on Pinterest and sure enough, there are heaps of ideas for traditional doilies.

The original doilies

You can see the small fan shape one on the left.   I still have the large one to create something.  Watch this space!

This is a prototype for a ‘range’ of hot water bottle covers I’m going to make to sell at the markets!  Real groovy 70’s style pictures on fabric, overlaid on 100% upcyled NZ made blankets. Peace baby!

I have a lovely little daughter-in-law.  I hope she likes this little purse I’ve made her for her birthday.  However, how can you not, they are so HANDY!

Glorious holidays!  Books, gardening, resting, fishing … sewing!  It was great to start and finish a small mural style freemotion sewing project today …2nd January 2018!

Something a little different than I usually do.   Maybe I’ll start a new one for tomorrow.
