Zips, Gifts and Folksy!

Since my last post I thought I'd better get making something with that lovely fabric. However I had the small problem of choosing which fabric to use! My loveable Border Collie has hurt his leg and has to rest it, so he took great pleasure in lying next to my desk while I got stuck in.

I decided to have a go at zips! This is something I've put off in the past, mainly because I thought the zipper presser foot looked a little daunting.

Zips all ready to go!

Some lovely scottie dog fabric to play with

I was actually pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use the zipper presser foot. It fact I found it fun! I made up these;

More zipper purses!

And cosmetic bags

I am very pleased to say I now have set up a shop on Folksy I will be adding new lines regularly and my zipper purses and cosmetic bags are currently listed for sale.

I've had so much fun making these, I can't wait to get back to the sewing machine!


  1. Lovely post - thank you. Your bags and your border collie are adorable.

  2. I love that doggy fabric so much...and it seems you're a natural at zips! They look great! :))
