Fairy Bread Coin Purse

Saturday, June 30, 2012 14 Comments A+ a-

Remember my fairy bread cards? I decided to go from paper to fabric and made this little fairy bread coin purse. It took me a couple of weekends of hand sewing and it was my first time working with a zipper. Once I get quicker at sewing I would love to make these for my shop or even include the pattern in my next zine.

Happy crafternoon lovelies! Its time for me to share with you my paper tissue pocket DIY. With the winter upon us here in OZ, I just had to make my sniffles cheerful some how. They are great for cheering up sick friends and make cute present toppers.Hope you all have fun making your own versions! I would love to see them if you do.

Picked up some polka dot tapes, happy socks, stickers, picnic mat and a Baggu bag - such a cute little invention. Finally bought an Emily Green necklace (been wanting one for yonks) and a little notebook for jotting down ideas found at sweet Japanese stationery shop Kami in Fitzroy. Must stores to check out if your in the city also includes Yen store Tokuya, Vincent 2, Craft Victoria, Wilkins and Kent, Little Salon and Ganim's - who stock the original surprise balls by Gina Namkung!Check out some other cool stores from my little trip in the snaps below.

The internet can be a really amazing place. One afternoon while getting a photographic feast on Instagram I met Imogen. After commenting on her amazing Uniqlo mt shirts she offered to buy me some and post them over!! They arrived today and I have been jumping up with joy ever since!! Thanks Imogen!! They also came with limited edition mt tapes and Imogen was also kind enough to give me some of her doubles. This has made my year!

While the start of my week started out rather dreary because of a very bad cold, it did end rather rosy thanks to a wonderful Friday night shopping at Sydney's winter Finders Keepers market.
This is where I found this amazing sloth plate made by Gretel Girl. How cute is it?? If you follow me on instagram (Username: Jenna Templeton) you would of seen some snaps of the night.
