My New Hobby


Hi Everyone, hope you're all having a great week! I've been super busy with my new hobby - sewing!

In a bid to save money on future Christmas presents (ever since I got married, the list of people to get gifts for have expanded almost exponentially), I decided to create makeup bags to give as gifts. Once I started making them, I realised I enjoyed making them so much I couldn't stop!


Here are some I've made so far, all of them have a contrasting fabric lining:


This pastel flower bag is made from Cath Kidston material, and I've made a little macaron charm to go with it.


The bags below has pastel bears holding macarons.




I've made little macaron charms for them too.




A bag with little deer and mushrooms:


I gave this bag a lilac and polka dot lining.



A Gingham and Cherry bag:


A Mini hearts and Bow bag:



Hope you liked them! I'm thinking of giving one away as part of my next Giveaway x

  9. Hi Penelope! They are so cute. I especially like the one with the cherries. So cute how you create a little charm for the zipper to go along with it. Anyone should be delighted to receive hand made gift.

    Can you do a tutorial or something? I would love to learn!!! And is it hard? I'm not too handy with a sewing machine.

  16. Hi Penelope, these are completely amazing! I'm completely so so so in love with the doe and polka dot pouch. Sigh, but such things can't be bought! I think beautiful handmade gifts can trump something that can be bought of a shelf anytime. I only wish I had the same talent as you. Your friends and family are truly lucky =)
