Handmade birthday presents

On Saturday we celebrated three birthdays of Paper Princesses including Princess Gaye, Princess Celeste and Princess Margaret. As usual, the day was full of laughter, fun, food, chatter, presents, exchanging ideas and most importantly friendships.

This bag was for Celeste. It is made out of an old coffee hessian bag. I spray painted it myself:

This bag was made for Margaret from the same coffee bag:

I managed to buy these cute metal tags on eBay which I had sewn onto the from of each bag:

Both bags have a pocket with velcro closing inside and a magnetic closing:

This is an iPad cover I made for Gaye. I used a drop sheet I use when spraying and stencilling paper. I also stamped the fabric:

I also made this leather cuff for Gaye. It was a challenge as sewing leather on a sewing machine is not that easy, parts of it had to be hand sewn.
