Ladybird, Ladybird fly away home…

Ladybird bag 1

A gift for my ladybird-fanatical friend!  I made this sweet sewing tote before Christmas but didn’t see my friend until just the other day, and she loved it!

Complete with needle-keep and scissor fob… and of course some ladybird ribbon (you can find the tutorial for the covered spool, here).

This stunning project was designed by the gorgeous Cheryl over at Willowberry Designs.  I love all the little details – like the additional stitchery ‘envelope flap’ inside the needle-keep!

My lovely ladybird friends’ name is Karen, and she’s recently started a new creative venture – making the most decadent-smelling soy candles and selling them at markets.  They’re so beautifully poured in to the cutest little jars… Karen is a perfectionist (you should see her neat stitching!!!!) and everything she creates, whether it be of fabric, paint or soy (!) is made to perfection!

Ladybird Candelbrites

Here are two of her candles – the pink is watermelon scented and the other Christmas-scented candle has a home-made cinnamon star added for a little extra touch!

You can find Karen and her Ladybird Candlelites over on Facebook – pop on over and say Hi and see what new products are on the horizon!  Smile

What have you got on the agenda for today?  I’m going to light my pink candle to sweeten my senses and then get to work on a magazine project.  It’s all a bit French, ya know!

Whatever you are up to – I hope it’s fun!

ps. Stephanie – another PIP finished!!! YAY!!!!

Oh la la...can't wait to see what the "a bit French" is. Your bag is lovely, funny how we call them Ladybirds and other people call them Ladybugs......
