Some girly bags

I am feeling a bit better, thanks for all your good wishes.
I went through my fabric this week, especially the thicker medium weight fabric. I have lots of small pieces , not enough to make cushion covers , but just enough for a small girly bag.
I used the Menina, free pattern on Eloleo's blog and of course I changed some things.... to make it more easy and quick. The bag is rather small, 22cm high and large and 8 cm deep at bottom.

 I found this shoulder strap long ago at a fleamarket......, it goes perfect with this girly bag!

A present

It is very quiet over here, i don't have the blog-mojo at the moment. But there are lots of things i did not show you so I will try to blog once a week this summer with lots of pictures.....

Do you remember that I met her  in Paris some weeks ago? She had a present for me.
 It's made with vintage indigo kimono and futon fabric. She made lots of quilts with this kind of fabric.
Last week Quiltmania was at her house to make lots of photos for the magazine in september or oktober.

It's a small pouch that you can  put in your suitcase with your earrings or something like that...

You can also use it as a wrap for a small present , like the Japanese do....... and like she did.

Inside was this beautiful bracelet pincushion!
Thank you my friend.
