Adorable Owl Softie Pattern / Tutorial

Hoot! Hoot! this is such a cute pattern  thanks to  Toad’s Treasures, it would have to be the easiest owl pattern I have seen .

As Christmas is just around the corner I am going to whip up a few for gifts.

I am planning to make one “shabby chic” with lovely pastel fabric and trimmed with laces and silk ribbons , I have a picture in my mind, another one I am going to make in little boys fabric and add a few novelty car button, as this one is for a budding rev head , still planning the one for the little girl, something cute & pretty .

My creative juices are flowing, off to make a start !

Here is the link to Trey’s Owl Pattern / Tutorial

Margo Handbag – Tote Pattern From Lazy Girl Designs

I love this pattern, can’t you just imagine yourself throwing  everything in your bag, grabbing it up and off out to browse the shops, have a nice  luncheon, join friends for coffee, or fill it with the essentials for baby.

It’s such a great handy shape and could be dressed up or down with your choice of fabrics.

The bag features a secure zip top closure, handy front pockets as well as several interior pockets.

(Instructions are included to make Margo without a zipper if desired)

Finished it would measure a very handy 10 1/4 ” x 9 1/4″ x 4″

Free Felt Cupcake Luggage Tag Pattern

Cupcakes are so popular at the moment. Cupcake crafts are cute, delicate, colourful with zero calories! This little cupcake luggage tag would make a perfect gift, and is guaranteed to help your luggage stand out.

This free pattern  is from Lisa Pay and although it says it’s for a luggage tag, you could really use it for so many things; a keyring, mobile phone charm, or a zipper pull on a bag.

I have some planned for Christmas gifts. I am going to attach a pair of scissors to mine; no more lost scissors!
