Finders Keepers

Headed to the first Brisbane Finders Keepers Markets today. In a beautiful venue – the Old Museum at Herston. So nice to see so many Brisbane artists in one space. What stood out? As expected, all about birds, owls and bird cages 🙂 I did find some beautiful hand made fabrics and kids things. Inspired – YES! 🙂

I really loved sharing it with another artist, hearing great tunes, eating spicy sausage and drinking strong coffee! Looking forward to the next one 🙂

Reuse, recycle, re-purpose…..

Found an awesome blog post on re-purposing a pair of jeans into kids messenger bags, so I raided the closet for an old pair of D’s jeans and started sewing. Here are the results. Mr 4 is obsessed with bike racing hence the Tour de France rider on the front and the finish line fabric for the lining. Making a girly bag is never quite as challenging but I whipped up a crochet flower with a vintage button to match the funky retro lining.
