i was in love and had to have it. turns out there was 1.5 yards there, so i took it, and it only cost me 1.50!!! thats about $3. so impressed. i then decided it would make a beautiful handbag, so i simply MUST have some lime green bits to go with it. back to the habadashery stall, where i picked up 3 of those ribbon bundles-theres about a metre and a half in each bundle...so like 4.5 ish metres...for a pound :D my day was made! i found some matching thread and caught the bus home to craft.
i didnt start with a handbag straight away-i would like to try that tomorrow though maybe. i did make this howeverand inside:
not particularly clear but you get the idea. purple cotton lining, all stitching done in the same green as the ribbon. im really happy with this one. just need to figure out what to hold in it!

I did have another blog on livejournal but i've let it die as i want this to be crafty and not moany-about-life-y.
I'm Lisa, 19 from England. I spend alot of time crafting. I enjoy just about any aspect of this that I've tried. I've sewn since I was tiny, I was given my first sewing box when I was 5 or 6....I only moved out of this sewing box into a much bigger one two weeks ago! I cross stitch, bead, sew, model out of polymer clay (mostly beads/jewelery) and I've recently been taught how to do crazy patchwork by a family friend....I think i'm hooked!
I love to read about others crafty ventures on sites like this one, and find it a huge source of inspiration.
