These were actually really fun to make. The materials can be super cheap to get as well, all you need is a bundle of ribbon, preferably complimentary colours and a little fabric for the inner bag.

But come on, it’s kind of difficult when you’re starting a new job and you want to impress. So yes, crafting has had to take a bit of a back seat but…… Continue reading Hello! Are you still there?
So she’s not quite finished yet and doesn’t have a name but I got so excited that I had to show you my progress! I think she’s coming along quite well, just a few tweaks and some beading and she’ll be ready to dance the night away. If you have a suggestion for her name…… Continue reading Another Day, Another Doll
