I got a new phone recently and didn't want to scratch the screen so I made a fabric phone case. Lots of people saw it and loved it so I ended up making quite a few :)

This is a Harry Potter cushion that I designed myself. I used a thick calico for the base as it makes a nice skin colour. Then I used bonder web to attach the fabric shapes. I used a blanket stitch on my sewing machine to make the edges neater and to make sure its all secure. I really love this cushion and am currently coming up with more designs like this.

Im off on my holidays soon and needed a beach bag. I didn't want to buy one so I made my own. I wanted it quite big to fit all my beach things in and I wanted big inside pockets. I choose a stripy cotton fabric and used a thick calico on the inside.
The pockets go right across on both side and one is divided into two smaller pockets ready for my suncream and book.
This is a machine embroidered cushion that I made recently. I used a fabric pen to draw on the design, its a special pen that washes off. It took me a while to embroider because there are a lot of colours and its quite a big cushion. I have used calico on the front and a purple cotton for the back.
I finally finished my crochet blanket. Its a neat ripple blanket and the pattern I followed is on the link at the bottom. Its double bed size but I keep it in the living room as its perfect to cuddle up on the sofa with. It took me a few months to finish and I have already started a new blanket.
