Stick Your Tongue Out!

Sunday is my ‘no work sewing allowed’ day, so I get to play and catch up with personal makes and pressies.
I recently saw this on flickr:

and thought they’d make cute kids presents.  My first attempt wasn’t too bad, especially as I went for a lined version:
Tongue is too big, strap too long, eyes too slitty & strap on wrong side!
My kids and their friends seem to love quirky things, so I’ll keeping working on these friendly ‘monster’ purses til I’m happy with the proportions and expressions.
My middle daughter spied this on flickr and thought it was soooooooo coooooool!

Wouldn’t it be fun if she found one of these in her stocking!
So playtime next Sunday might be spent on these bad boys!
I also got a wee bit of quilting done on one of the nephew cushions, and some chain piecing on the little girl cot quilt.
But now onto something much more mundane!
I had to finish the last traunch of makeup bags today, as they are going into the salon tomorrow.  I’m sure you’re as sick of seeing these as I am, but here are the final 11 going for sale:

The ‘pre tissue paper stuffed’ look!
Sadly, these don’t include the ones I was going to make as presents, so it looks like I’m not yet done making makeup bags!!!!

Hope you’ve had a great start to the new week (it’s December this week!  Eeeeeeeeeek!)
