If you happen to have this month's Australian Homespun Magazine, you'll see what all that secret squirrel work I was doing last year was about. It's a big "project of the month" bag-making bonanza!
As you can see, I'm in fine company....
Since the main photo was done as a double-page spread, I thought I'd find a better version online than I could take myself. ...Ummm. No. I had to take this from Amy Butler's Facebook page and it'sTINY. Sorry.
Of course, I remembered to hone in on the parts of the picture that included my own work...
I designed a craft-project carry case (what else?), inspired by vintage hat-boxes and beauty cases. It's a structured oval shaped case that you can sit on your lap. It has a lid that flips right open and pockets on the inside of the lid and around the inside wall, so you can access everything you need to craft on the go. (Or I guess you could use it as a beauty case...?).
I also developed the instructions for Amy Butler's contribution to the range. She provided the pattern and a sample, and I wrote the how-to and made the bag. It's a big carry-all/overnight bag (and I use one of my samples of it as a swimming bag).
