My Creative Space

My Creative Space today is trying to wrestle this sparkly tulle off the Bling Monster so I can make some flower filled fairy skirts in time for this weekend's Devonport Craft Market.

My Creative Space this week is all about getting ready for the market. There's been a nice long break between the last market and this one so I've had plenty of time to come up with some new stock but of course, I have left it to the last minute yet again.

I've been busy being a Monkey-Maker.
and I've made some school or library book bags (but I haven't figured out a way to photograph those prettily!)

And as you can see, I've been making a few of my Tape Measure Rose Brooches too.

I still have a pile of applique t-shirts to finish off but they will have to wait. Being a Mummy is taking prescendent today. There's  Cross Country to watch at school and Girl Guide Biscuits to sell , not to mention thinking up Creative ways to wrestle the tulle off the Bling-Monster. Everything else is just going to have to wait.

The weather isn't set to be great this weekend so if you aren't coming to visit me at the Devonport Craft market,  have a look at yesterday's post which has a tutorial for making a tiny doll carrier bag ( which can be adjusted for carrying cars or boy's action figures).

To see lots and lots and lots (take the day off, you'll need it) of amazing Creative Spaces, pop over to Kirsty's.
