A bunch of crafting today :)

Today was spent primarily in the craft room...only emerging to eat and drink occasionally !

I got quite a few projects finished and a few more started and I'm quite pleased with the outcome of most of them.

First up is a pocketbook done for a swap. The bag measures 9" wide at the bottom, 12" wide at the top, and approx 11" deep. Fully lined with 3 small inner pockets and magnetic snap closure.

Then we have some really wonky "un-paper towels" these are great, I don't use nearly as many real paper towels now so it saves money. Just toss them in the washer and they're good as new.

Next up are two fabric headbands. I LOVE these things. I'm growing my hair out so it's a pain in the behind unless I want to wear it in a pony tail constantly, which I don't want to do. I'd never been a big headband person first because the ones you buy in the store never stay in place and secondly because they're usually pretty ugly too ! These have an elastic band that goes under your hair in back to keep them nicely in place and I can make them in any color or print I want. YAY ME ! These 2 are for a friend though, so they won't be added to my stash.

Last but not least is this cute little octopus necklace I did. Again, this is for a friend based on something she wisted that was similar. Made from shrinky dink and jewelry chain :)
