And it has proper shoulder straps too…
So off to tend to my sick husband and to dream about my next project - a fabric baby book, or something similar...

In the mean time crafting and sewing will continue as usual.

I haven’t got much to show you but since it is Easter next week, I would like to share my simple egg decoration. I used a tutorial which has photos of some perfect, gorgeous looking eggs…well, what can I say, I guess I need many more years of stitching practice to be able to recreate those…
Also a few things I would like to share:

Every shop I go to these days is full of Easter decoration, so I decided to make some of my own. Well, at least experiment. Some fabric Easter eggs are in the making and photos will come soon, but I wanted to make something more kiddie like so this is how little chick came about.
It was fun to make, and I must say I love its cute little feet...but it is somehow not what I imagined...expected...had in mind...Well I had to finish it and I took some photos to share, but I must admit it looks more like a hot pot holder that a sweet decoration.

And after it took me twenty minutes to find a pair of glasses that belong to my little girl, I decided to make her a box to keep all her sun glasses in ( she has about four pairs more than I do). If you have seen my previous post you’ll know that I use a great tutorial created by Christina at The Sometimes Crafter – and I have to say: Beware the boxes are highly addictive!I found myself going through the house wondering what else needs boxing.However this time I did not have enough inter-lining – I only purchased a little bit to try out if it was hard enough. So I cut two rectangular pieces and placed them on top of each other to make a big cross. Than I ironed said cross onto the back side of my chosen fabric and did the rest as per the tutorial. The box turned out fine and if anything it has a much stronger base.
In hope of more sunny weather… and well looked after sunglasses...
Love, Irina xx
