Little Frilly Bag, Beanbags & A Retreat...

I've been giving my sewing machine a bit of a workout this past week! To start off with I made this cute little bag from Janelle's gorgeous "For The Girls" pattern.It's a great gift idea for any little girl who loves bags! It was also pretty easy to make too. This has already gone to a little cutie who had birthday earlier in the week. Now I need to make one for Madi! (To find out where you can purchase Janelle's patterns just check out the list of stockists on her blog.)

Then Mel gave me a really easy beanbag pattern so I got busy making 3 for our lounge room. They're the perfect size for the kids...and now they love sitting or laying on them while playing the Playstation or watching tv! Here's Madison (with very scruffy hair!) on hers...

I just did plain chocolate brown ones for the boys to match in with our colour scheme. (A little boring to photograph.)

Sorry I don't have any scrapping to share at the moment.. although I'm halfway through a layout! I'll share that one in my next post...

So who else is going to the very first @HomeAway Weekend Retreat in November? I AM AND I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! It's going to be so much fun and I'm looking forward to finally meeting some beautiful online friends in person after all this time....VERY exciting!!!!! Are you going?
