Productive Sunday.

I had lovely relaxed crafty Sunday. I made this small bag - another Mother's Day stall offering. It's a bit silly really when you compare the time it took with the price they'll probably charge the kids. I must remember it's the thought that counts.
See Bec, I used some of your 'scraps'.
For the zipper pull I used 2 small yo yos and a piece of saved ribbon. I wear a lot of Regatta clothes. They tie their labels on this thin brown ribbon. I think it's a sturdy gros grain (may have misspelt that) with a little extra decoration going down the middle. Too good to just throw out. I saved a few now. Knew I'd find a use one day! What's that new word? 'Repurposing', I think.
Zippers and I are still trying to get to know one another, but I am getting better with them.
We had an easy tea last night. I'm not the greatest cook. I'm always surprised when things turn out. I'm getting good a these 'use up what's left over' omelets.

Have a good week everyone.
Take care,
Kayly

Just gorgeous Kayly.... I love ANY kind of zipper bags... They are so useful and I'm sure some wonderful Mum will appreciate a handy present from her beautiful child on Mother's Day.

Lovely little bag there. What a great idea with the ribbons you save, and the yo-yo looks perfect on the ribbon!! Sounds nice with the Mother`s Day Stalls.
