"I've just received my beautiful handmade change bag and matching lunch bag, for my son's birthday in August. The craftsmanship is phenomenal and overall design fantastic, fully credited to Jane and her patience in hearing my description of what I wanted. J***** also got an extra gift of a matching pillow! I truly cannot recommend Loopy's Place enough for any handmade need. Thank you endlessly Jane, Jude is going to love it!"
I love working with people to make their ideas a reality. You can read more about it on the blog shortly. In the meantime, if I can help you, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
In Member's Showcase
There has been a lot of activity in all our member's groups this week and it has been great to see all the photos. When it comes to teaching new crafts to people, it's always special when you see their success. Stewart is new to sewing having only recently been treated to a sewing machine. He's been doing some of the calendar projects and got stuck into making bags from June. Not only did he make his first bag, he even adapted another one to suit his own needs
You'd be made very welcome if you'd like to come and join us in the Get Creative with Loopy group. You can get to show off your creations and it's a great place to tap into the wealth of experience when you need help with different projects. Just click on the link below and I'll see you over there.
Sometimes, when you've completed a bigger project, you end up with fabric leftover. It's so easy to just put it back on the shelf and forget about it. I'm trying very hard to make use of it and clear my stash. This project is one you might find useful to use up some of your leftover fabric. The fabric I've used is upholstery weight 100% cotton I had left when I'd finished making an ironing board cover.
Here are some of the offers I've spotted this week.
