Drawing bags

One of my 'best sellers' have been baking bags. These are a little cotton shopping or storage bag with an apron, recipe card, cake cases, rolling pin, wooden spoon, whisk and a cookie cutter.
Baking bag
I've made them in all sorts of fabrics and hopefully they'll continue to do well. Last week Pickle-Lily and I created our newest product - Drawing bags. These are a cotton bag with a packet of pencils, sketch pad, palette of paints and a choice of felt pencil case with a pencil set in it. I'm hoping they will appeal as presents or something to take in the car or just for storing all those arty bits in.
Great fabric for the bag!

Some of the pencil case designs.
I've got quite a few events lined up this week, for some reaon they've all fallen together, so I will see how they sell.
Now for something different, I have realised it is our first birthday and the next post will be the 100th, so for the next post we will have a Birthday Giveaway! P and I are busy creating a party bag for the lucky winner, so watch out for the next post.
Inbetween this all I will be visiting all the blogs over at Wendy's Handmade Monday - it usually takes me all week, but I enjoy the later visits as I get to read 'more' blog if that makes sense!
Have a good week!

No wonder the baking bag has been a bestseller - what a lovely idea. The drawing bag sounds just as good. Good luck with the fairs.
I know what you mean about blog visiting. It's more fun when you've got more time just to enjoy the blogs!
