Yoga & Exercise Mat Bag

My daughter requested a bag to put her yoga mat in, as she was fed up with carrying it under her arm.  

Yes I know the feeling, my mat is like a floppy fish, I lost the tie, and when I finish my class, and roll it up, it just as quickly unrolls.  So together we designed a pretty bag to carry that large floppy piece of foam in.

And here it is. Now listed in my store and  also in my  Made It  store and my daughter took the other.  Im going to add it to my store aswell this evening.
It is made from one of my Lila Tueller gorgeous Party Dress fabrics, has a rope handle that easily flings over your shoulder.

Available in all the lightweight fabrics and organic Beyond The Sea fabric too.  If you would like a specific fabric, or even a slightly wider fit, then drop me an email.

Bettie Birdie ~ Retro bunting/hanging birds

Its so nice to have my camera back at long last, and take some pics of my renovations and also my new Bettie Birdies.  
I wanted to make some bunting,  but didnt want the regular triangles, which i love  and have in my laundry.  I wanted something slightly different.

I had a rummage around in my workroom, because I new hiding somewhere was the bird pattern I had made last year, for some patches on teeshirts.  After some frantic emptying of boxes, I found her.  I had named her Bettie Birdie.  I file in mysterious ways!!!!!

Anyway to cut a long story short, I broke out my oilcloth and made these gorgeous doublesided Birdies.  And they do the trick, just what I wanted.  I have since been asked if I sell these, so here they are, in my Made It Shop.   
Pop over if you get a minute, Iam running an offer with these ~ if you buy 4 you can have the 5th totally FREE.

Vintage Pink 

Happy decorating.
