A Mix Bag Of Things

 A couple of bags I have made up ready to sell, the first one I have used cork fabric, it is real cork I have been itching to use it on something
This one I love the colours on 
A landscape art bag, I have made this one for myself but I am going to make some more up in different designs to add to my stock lines.
I dont think I have showed these, fidget spinner cases, I have been making these from recycled denim.
I loved making this little mouse, she is only 4 inches tall again I am going to make up some more.
 
work in progress, this tweed applique will be a wall hanging, I have added 3d voile leaves to it
and something for me, during the hot spell we had I needed something cool to wear, tailored shorts are just too uncomfortable, so I made up some culottes, they were so comfortable and cool I have now made up several pairs.
 
I am working on setting up an online shop, it is again work in progress and hope in the next few weeks I will have it up and running, more news and a link to come when I have it ready.

My five things for this week is five craft lines I have done in readiness for tomorrows craft market.
A couple of Duck Door-stoppers made from Yorkshire wool.
Doggie Bandanna's I am always getting asked for these I make them from cotton fabric they can then be thrown into the washing machine as dogs can get really mucky sometimes.
Some more medic alert seat belt covers, a couple of these are for an order. 
The ever popular fairy tea light houses, another order being collected tomorrow, they have the little battery operated tea light inside.
These are something completely new to me a customer requested some, I had never seen them before a bit of research and here they are, Sock Needle cases, there is only an opening on one side
You pop your part knitted sock attached to your dpn's inside, fasten shut your precious stitches are protected and are not going to slip off the ends. Can also be used with circular needles.
The lady who has asked for them travels around a lot and wants them for when she is on the move to protect her knitting.
So that is my five for this week do pop over and visit the other blogs.
