Time for Pixie Snippets Playground

Somehow I missed visiting the playground last week and I've actually not made a card for nearly two weeks - must certainly do something about that or I'll never get through my card and paper mountain!!  I do have something (yes you've guessed - another bag) for the challenge this week using the remaining snippets of my upcycled denim skirt which I'd cut up to make the dolphin bag.  I liked the look of this pattern, again from Debbie Shore, and thought I'd have a go at this small handbag which has more work involved than some of the ones I've made.  There are D-rings to attach the handles which I like; strips of contrasting fabric with top stitching and also a magnetic clasp which is always a bit of a worry just in case I poke the holes in the wrong places and thus spoil the whole project.  Luckily all went well and I'm pleased with the result.

Di has made a lovely card this week using a handy die which is of course the prize on offer and there are some great picks from last week's entries - do take a look and maybe make something using some of your own snippets.


  1. What a lovely bag Val I just love the design like your contrasting fabric
    Gosh you've made so many different designs and used lots of beatiful fabrics


  2. This looks fab too - must try and attend the tombola later in the year!

  3. Another absolutely super bag Val. Barbxx

  4. Such a lovely bag Val, great design.

  7. Wow this bag is fabulous, up cycled too, you are sooooooo clever! Xxx

  8. WOW - I love the look of that bag too. Aren't you clever to make it. (I am hopeless with a capital H at sewing!)

    Thanks for your sympathy re my shoulder.
