This time I went for red, pink and white, I think it's kind of summery; like strawberries and cream. In the end it was made up of 6 triangles - 2 of each colour. It's quite pretty, and will be on sale on Saturday in my stall. It's been a lovely day - lots of nice people popping in to buy my bits and bobs, and to have a chat. I hope that means that it's a good place to visit, I like nice people!
I'm off to get all of my paperwork in a neat pile for tomorrow, but I would much rather be popping over to kootoyoo for more creative spaces!

And as a little bonus, inside the sewing book there was this advert for various patterns - aren't they fab!?!
Lots of lovely things to play with, I already have a plan for the yarn, and I can't wait to get started!
For more Flea Market Finds, pop on over to see Sophie Isobel

I have loads of ideas for new patterns - I saw lots of lovely things in London that have inspired me, but again, there aren't enough hours in the day! I hope to take a bit of time off in the next few days, so hopefully I can start working on some new things.

Ai Weiwei's unilever installation in Tate Modern
I've come home with a head full of ideas and things I want to work on, but for now I'm just catching up with everything!

Apologies for the fact that this photo is pre-iron, but I was just to excited not to post pics right away! I have used the tapestry as the front pocket, it needs a button and popper to keep it closed so that's the next job on the list! I have lined the pocket with vintage pink floral fabric, and the bag itself is lined with vintage yellow floral fabric. One of the other stall holders was unimpressed with my choice of "clashing" patterns, but admitted that it worked when she saw the finished bag. I'm pretty pleased with it, it hangs really low and it's big enough that I can stash all of my stuff in it!
