Baby sheets for the little angel

Hello everyone,
How are you all doing? I was all determined after my last post to blog at least once in a week, but no,that did not happen.As I said before,either I dont have pics or  I dont like the pics taken. I think I am becoming lil lazy now(?). anyway  I ve been a good girl today doing all those pending things and I feel so happy about it.

 From last week my craft time is fully dedicated to make these baby sheets for my new born niece. Yes, another baby girl added to my bro's family. I promised her Mom, my SIL ,these sheets, but couldnt get it done when we went to see her last time.After coming back, these were given priority and happy that its done.She loves hand mades and I am sure the effort will be appreciated. I made a decision long ago to give my hand mades only those who value it.
I had fun choosing colours and trimming for these. The baby pink was my first choice and I totally love the colour, very very baby pink!!Edging for pink and lavender are from the Needle n thread Magazine and rest are my own patterns, not so fancy but simple ones.

I did embroidery on one of the corner. Pink was my favourite among these so gave a lavish flower motif for that.I like this motif very much and I'm saving this for another project.

.. I was all tired after that. So the rest were done in very simple patterns. Her initial 'R' and some flowers, a bow  snatched from this pattern and one sheet I kept it plain.
And this pair of pink booties is what I gave to her when we went home last time. I made this on the morning we reached home, all in a hurry , cos I desperately wanted to give her something made by myself.  This week we are going home again and I am ready with my gifts for her, but still not ready with "order" by her elder sister, the big monster, my God daughter. She wants a pillowcase, sorry 2 pillowcases, with a duckie and bunny embroidered on it. I am yet to start with it. And where did she get the idea from? I shall tell you later.
So until then
Take Care

Colour Burst Bag

Hello everyone,
How you all doing? its been some time right? I dont know where time goes these days, really wanted to post  about my new crafty trials , but I  dont get time to take proper pictures now and I dont like posts without any pics, do you? :D There are a lot of things, small and big, to show you all, and nowI shall show you my colour  burst bag 
 The whole idea came while arranging my stash. The bag is hugely , heavily inspired from the crochet bag by Lucy and Spikes Strike by Sanhita, its a mix of these two and something from my head.When I saw all the colours these two bags came to my mind and next day itself I started working on it. The base and body were done in no time but stayed as UFO for many days to get straps and other things.
The straps and base are the only portion which is colour coordinated. I usually take time to choose colours for all my projects(I think that shows too) but here no, I didnt. I just took the colours randomly and was not happy with it ant first look. But looking at it many times,I think I started liking my bag.I can carry it off quite easily!
The straps were done with a long chain and dc on it, then 2 rounds of sc's . Then sewn onto the bag , put flowers to hide the stitching and I've lined the bag ( not came neatly,and thts why no pic of that, have to redo that).I really am not good with making bags and always scared of doing it, now I think after making this one I gained a bit confidence. 
Project Details
Base for the bag:  here
