Something new


Regular visitors will know I like trying out new handsewn items to sell and had the idea of making some handbag tissue covers. I searched the internet and found instructions I liked. I am sure left to my own devices they wouldn't have looked like this nor been as easy to make. I found it at Two Brown Birds under travel tissue cover.  I made one for myself and it looks so much nicer in my handbag than just a packet of plastic covered tissues. 

We went to see some friends at the craft fair yesterday and I liked the look of it so have booked in for four starting in July. Today we are going to have a day at home pottering doing odds and ends, a bit of gardening and whatever else we fancy doing.

These are just gorgeous Marianne. I remember being given one many years ago and yes they do look much nicer in your handbag and keep the tissues from fraying away to dust.
