I am sure when you go to the beach, you pick a lot of little treasures.
So I decided to make a special treasure bag to collect (not too much!) all pretty finds.
The new collection "by the sea"from Crafty Ribbons is just perfect for it. I used by the sea-seaside for the bag's bottom.
and by the sea-lighthouse for the handles. Very quick to sew and I think it will be appreciate by all.
Have a peaceful time today,

Hello, Laura here today. I have something a little out of the ordinary to share with you today...
It's a ribbon fairy in a jar of mushrooms! Bear with me here... ;)
The first thing I thought of when I saw the Spring Ribbon Mushrooms was fairies. I decided to try and make a miniature fairy to live among the mushrooms.
I've used a couple of beads for her head and body, 2mm silk ribbon for her arms and legs, seam binding and silk ribbon for her skirt and lace for her wings.
I also made a couple of mushrooms from Swiss Dot grosgrain and wire stems. I suspended the fairy on a thread so it looks like she is flying.
Totally bonkers but so much fun!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Folks, Laura here. I've been playing with a cute free cut file from UK Scrap Addicts. It's designed by my friend Emma and she called it Bunny Butt - what's not to love?!
I set my Silhouette Cameo to cut a warren of rabbits and set about making some bunting for Easter.
I started off with my ribbon - Swiss Dots Organza ribbon in a colourway exclusive to Crafty Ribbons. I matched my watercolours to the dots on the ribbon and messily splashed paint over the bunnies. When that was dry I splattered a load of gold ink over them. It kind of looks like the mottled eggshells on Mini Eggs!
I pulled a few felt hearts from SpiegelMom Scraps and a handful of paperclips and clipped the bunnies at a regular-ish distance apart across the ribbon. Really simple. Well, I struggled with a few of the paperclips, actually, but it should have been simple!!
I don't have a good place to hang bunting to photograph it, so this is the best I can offer for a hanging photo...
Cute, huh? Here is the process video:
Thanks for joining me today. Happy Easter!
