Back crafting :-)

It's been a long time since I've had time to do some craft... but this last week I've actually been able to do some and it has been wonderful!

These two circular purses I made from the photo tutorial found on handmadiya. They were quite a faff to make but it was lovely to be doing some hand sewing again and I love how they turned out. I'm calling them 'yo-yo purses' as that what they make me think of.

These purses were presents for two girls off to Australia for a year so I wrapped them up like parcels with pretty butterfly stamps cut from some tissue paper I had in my stash.

School has also just finished - as I've spent this year working as a TA in my children's primary I wanted to give all 35 children in my class a present... so I broke out the hama beads and made these initial key rings for each of them. I used the letter shapes from this flickr photo.
