here is the second present i made for my mum's birthday using what was left over from the cushion. luckily, i had a piece of leather almost identical in size to the last scrap of william morris print fabric, and i thought it was the perfect time to attempt a little purse!
i bought the magnetic snaps from ebay here and they were so easy to use- i think i may get a bit addicted to using them. the button was from a clearance box of buttons ages ago- i stocked up on tons of different ones which is slightly mad as i have loads, but i just couldn't help it.
and as i am on the subject of diy's and general crafty goodness, i have some pretty exciting news.
as of next week i will be starting a new part time job with an amazing little craft company in hove. i won't say any more for now, but finally being able to leave retail and pursue two jobs that i am passionate about is amazing. i've found it really hard juggling two jobs over the last few months, but i have always known that the retail job was taking its toll on me. to now be able to say that i work for two independent companies, both in areas that i love is amazing, and i cannot express how excited i am!
