~Two New Shoe Bags~


A quick little post here...
I've finished 2 little shoe bags
one for my Sister and one for me...


A little label on the back of my Sister's bag...


And I managed to find perfect little glass beads for the ties!!!
Pattern by Anni Downes from her Some Kind of Wonderful book...


The fabric was gifted to my by Nat whom I met whilst I was in Bathurst
shortly after I moved and she also moved...
Nat is really into dyeing fabrics now!!!
She dyed the pink one above and also the thread!!!

Now I'm really looking forward to using my shoe bag next time we have an overnight stay!!!

Now you'll have to plan a trip so you can use your new shoe bags. Nat's dying is such fun.

They are lovely, nd good that you made one for yourself too. I like the way you used braid instead of ribbon.
