I've been looking forward to this month's Craftseller magazine, not just because some of my projects made it onto the pages, but because one of those projects is very close to my heart.
This vintage-styled handbag (purse for those of you across the pond) has a very special face on the front - my lovely Grandma as a young girl. I'm told this picture was taken sometime after the first world war - in any case it was well before my dad was born in 1928!
You may remember I blogged about making this bag a few weeks back. It uses a nifty little fabric that you can print directly onto using your ordinary inkjet printer and the resulting printed fabric is even washable (I've not tested its washability, but the printed fabric is excellent). I bought mine from Crafty Computer Paper - and I've since been back for more as this project has given me a bucketload of ideas!
My Grandma would have been so proud - not just because her own face was in a magazine, but because she was always very proud of all her grandchildren's achievements (no matter how small).
Also in this issue are a couple of my cards which use Craftseller's free papers.
If cards are your thing, you may be interested in my new Christmas digital stamps, which I've uploaded this week. I think this robin might be my favourite...
...but I do want to get some more Christmas digis drawn and uploaded very soon.
It's over to you now for Handmade Monday. Are you making for Christmas, or still making for Halloween?
Or maybe your mind is on something else altogether? Tell us about it...
