Bags of Star Wars!

Gosh, did I have fun this week with my Star Wars fabric quarters.  I had been keeping them for a while as I was undecided what to make with them.  Any fabric like this normally gets turned into a PE/kit bag!

Then last week I decided upon turning them into carrier bag holders (so useful in storing plastic bags from the supermarket). Plus storing your plastic bags in this way is much neater and organised than shoving them in a kitchen drawer, like I used to do!

I have made countless of these bag holders and they have always sold out on my Etsy shop.  It’s a great opportunity to be creative with your pattern and fabrics and to also add touches like fun ribbons etc.  Plus, of course, the bag holders are also very practical indeed.

I had three different types of Star Wars fabric quarters so I decided to make three different bags.  All individual and striking in their own way.

All are available to buy on my Etsy shop (see link above).  I can also custom make bag holders of your choice.  Just message me on Etsy.

Thanks for reading!

Dr Who and film fabric!

IMG_1877

I saw this great fabric in my local fabric store, Cottonpatch in Birmingham. As an ardent Dr Who fan since a little girl, I just couldn’t resist! It’s bang on trend too for the new female Doctor on BBC although I believe there will be no more Daleks present in the new series

The fabric features the Doctor’s arch enemy, the Daleks!  I had a list of things in my head that I wanted to use this delightful fabric for and in the end I decided on a drawstring bag and a document wallet. It was such fun sewing with this fabric.  I loved it!

 

 

There seems to be a rise in popularity in film or tv fabrics. I recently purchased some fat quarters from Hobbycraft, themed with both Jungle Book and Toy Story. I have used the Jungle Book fabric to make some bunting, which sold a few days later. The Toy Story fabric is currently in the process of being made into bunting again!

Mickey Mouse and friends have also featured in my Etsy shop  I’ve had great fun making purses, wallets and bunting from a great array of fabric.

 

 

 

Just last week, I saw a fabulous Tom and Jerry fabric too. It’s on my radar to buy although I have so many fabrics! It’s just hard to resist. Watch this space!
