A Bag for Tom Tom

My sister called me tonight and asked if i could make her a bag for her Tom Tom (think Navigation system).

She wanted something that she can slip it into and put in her bag so it was protected.

this is what i came up with.

I made it with a strap that snaps open so she can put it around her wrist or strap it to her handbag, so it doesnt fall to the bottom of her bag.--i think i need one for my phone.
oh may have to make one for my camera.

The new look

Ok so Byron has been asking since he was 2 for an Earring.

During an outing with friends we found ourselves in the chemist having it done.

So yes he finally has his Earirng (sorry i am corrected) "stud".

He was really good about it, after being asked "are you sure" about 6 times.
He just sat there and had it done without a flitch..... you could tell it hurt at 1st but he wasnt letting on hehe.

He did have to sit down after going a bit pale so sat in the trolley and had a drink whilst we continued shopping.

Dad was a tad shocked understandably i mean it's not every day your 6 year old comes home from shopping and a movie and shows you a freshly made hole in their ear.

i think that byron is happy about the decision and if down the track he decides he doesnt want it any more then he can not wear the 'stud'.

I need to take a better photo but this is the one taken that night in bed.

so he was rather tired and a bit anxious about lying on it.

lets start the show and tell

Whilst enjoying a new found hobby 'Blog surfing' I discovered a very talented lady's blog
Whilst perusing the blog i found a fabric Cubby house that goes on your dining table so i looked from the computer screen to the dining table covered in sheets and towels and then back to the computer screen.
On goes the light bulb and away turn the little cogs in my head, my mind quickly heads to the large bag of fabric i was 'given' to by a friend, thanks Anne.
Most of the fabric is thermal lined curtaining which was sitting patiently waiting for a job to do.

So i went to the scrap bag and got what i needed.
This was done with the help of Byron my eager 6 year old son.
of course at 6 you think that anything is possible so the Cubby needed flowers and fairies and a mail box and butterflies and bees and mushrooms oh and a pond with a duck and upon finding cherry fabric it needed an orchard. this is where i needed to assure him that the Cubby was going over only one table.

So the final product doesn't have all that but most of it.

I have however decided that i will do the other side and will be adding a bird bath instead of a pond, this was the compromise i also need to add a spiders web of course.

Here i sit
