Another week has passed

Wow, another week ago gone, another week closer to the end of the school term. I managed to get more sewing done this week, I'm working on bunting, gifts for teachers and made a fabric storage box.
I've been meaning to make more fabric boxes after I made a few felt ones and kept finding other things to make, while looking at one of my favourite blogs I found a tutorial by Pink Penguin and it reminded me to make my own, Mine is a different size and shape to Pink Penguin and her pattern is quite easy to adjust.

Made from felt ready for bits and bobs.
I really like my fabric storage, my blue one doesn't have DVDs in it but toilet rolls and now lives in my blue bathroom and my felt boxes are in my eldest daughters room and full of all the little things that teens like.

My youngest daughter has been reading Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl at school and inspired by Wes Anderson's film I'm working apple key rings for her teacher, I can't show any pictures at the moment but I will once it's complete but have a little look at this recipe for Mrs Beans famous nutmeg ginger apple snaps I'm going to try making them in the summer holidays.

My bunting will be complete soon this is a preview of it so far (please not I have spelt the name wrong but as the letter aren't fixed in place I managed to rearrange them) I really like the fabric chosen for this bunting which I got  from the wonderful Emma's fabric studio based in the UK. I've got a few bundles for there now and would happily recommend her shop.

Tomorrow we have the Olympic torch coming to Stevenage and I'm going to take some excited children to watch it so if your local I might see you there.

See you again soon,
