Yep, I am a naughty blogger - I finished my Bats Clutch, and my Skeleton Hand Coin Purse, and haven't posted pics - *spank*!

Well, I still don't have any good ones ... but I do have some 'make-do' ones. The first is of the Bats Clutch - the design needs refining, as I learnt that the bag should only be as deep as the sides of the frame. Woops! But it still looks awesome:

And on Tuesday night Anita and I went out for an impromptu dinner at Eden Dining Room And Bar at the Marina Pier at Glenelg - oh my Goddess, what an amazing place! I'm not good at foodie reviews (see Anita's blog for that stuff), but it was amazing ;) Before we left she took a couple of pics of the Skeleton Hand Coin Purse - excuse the bad lighting!

One side:

And the other:

That was far more successful - even though I could only fit my phone and lippy in there ... well, it *is* a coin purse, after all ;)

I've used a zebra print fabric for the lining of both bags - I might buy some more, since that will match pretty much every design I'll come up with.

I've just ordered a frame that's in between the two sizes, so after I've finished my current coin purse (in turquoise leopard print!), I'm going to re-do the Bats design.

Note to self: make time to dress up and do proper pictures in better lighting, heh.


  1. this Bats Clutch is sooooo awesome! Great work! love it!!!

    1. Thank you!! Once I've got the shape of the bag right, I'll be 100% happy with it ;)

  2. Oh my goodness these are so cool! You are so talented.

    1. Aww, thanks gorgeous! For me, the actual designing/stitching is the easy bit - it's making it into a usable bag that I'm struggling with ;)
