Ever since I wrote my first tutorial on how to make your own twill tape labels I've been itching to write some more. With time being of the essence there has just been no room for discovering new avenues for expressing my craft. But with August bringing more time to dedicate to bagladee I am looking forward to really getting my teeth into some new projects.

I know that I love reading blogs and find it really interesting when they include tutorials, I always like to learn new techniques and see how other people make things. Do you like to read tutorials? I have a couple of ideas of projects to write about but I was wondering if there was anything in particular that you would like to see? If you'd like to leave any suggestions I'll see what I can come up with.

Now I'd like you to meet another member of the bagladee family....these are felt flower brooches that are available here. I love making these brooches, the best part is choosing the combinations of felt. I can lose hours hand stitching them :D


  1. how to put a hidden inside pocket in a bag (zip pocket) I have done it but just bodged it along, I would like to know how to do it properly...

  2. Any bags tutorials could be wonderful!! Or just little hints and pro secrets (like the above comment) that can help us, beginners, with sewing tasks.

  3. Ooh, yes, I've just thought of one! How do you make the little cards that you mount your brooches on? I've sold all but one of my little birdie brooches so need to make some more, but I'd love to know how to do this! At the moment I just fold a bit of card around them to protect them, which is a bit amateur (which I am, of course, but you know what I mean!)
