A Newspaper Bag For Grandma Winnie

Newspaper Shopping bag
I made this bag for one of “Mums Monkeys” favourite followers, Grandma Winnie, who is officially Monkey, Darrell and Nigel’s adopted Grandma!!  She remarked that she liked the original newspaper style bag I did featuring the rascals and as I love her so much I made an extra special one for her, featuring her and her adopted monkey Hamish.

In cahoots with Winnie’s daughter Linda, who sent me some information and the pictures   I put this A4 sized newspaper design together, using Windows Publisher, which I then printed onto transfer paper and ironed onto a cotton bag from HobbyCraft.

It was such a pleasure to do and am keeping my fingers tightly crossed that it got to Winnie in time for Mother’s Day.

Good Luck Card

Good Luck Card
Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with very small wooden embellishments … often they are too small to use on their own, but when put in a group they can look cluttered and messy.
However I think I have struck a happy medium on this card …. I was thinking that when you wish someone Good Luck it’s usually when they are going (flying) off to do something new and on their own …. like a new job, a driving test or an exam ….. and my little bird is striking off on his own too.
