Introducing the Sophie Shopper

I made this lush oversized shopper for my friend Sophie a few weeks ago, aptly named 'The Sophie Shopper'.  The Laura Ashley style fabric is from Dorchester Market - about £9.99 a metre, but the lovely stall owners gave me a very generous metre which meant I could line the inside of the bag as well in the canvas fabric.  I added some navy/gold trim ribbon to add a twist of Country Bumpkin Chic magic so Sophie can carry her yummy bread home from the Town Mill bakery in Dorchester.

I Heart Pins

I just had to share these kitsch ♥ shaped pins which one of my good friends gave me for my birthday.  They're almost too cute to use!

I had a Google and you can even get flower shaped pins - check out www.nettlegreen.co.uk, they're only £1.50 - billy bargain!  They'll deffo help brighten up the tedious job of tacking, just remember not to iron over them, like I did the other day to a sphere shaped one totally messes up your iron - eek!
