Update on a Project and some shopping and gifts

Ok, I forgot about this one!{thanks Helen!for reminding me!!}
This was Megan's project for Art and Design, last term, they had to make a handbag.
She decided on a simple pattern of a shopping bag and decorated it.
She used plain canvas and sprayed it with a brush and paint, in different colours.
She had a photo printed of herself in canvas too, sewed it onto the bag.
She used cotton material to add some colours, made some flowers out of felt and also used some of MY rub-ons! Decorated some more with buttons and so on. The handles she used plain cord and covered it with yards and yards of ribbons, which she tied up. This cord and ribbon she took with her, whenever we were driving, just so that she could get it all tied up! I just love it!!

The back of the bag!

                   This bag I bought at China Mall, oh my gosh, they have got BEAUTIFUL things there.

Some of the shoes we bought there, not one pair over R100.

Then, some scrapping shopping, just a few things, bit of flowers from Prima, Paper from Making Memories, Pink Paisley and some butterflies and blings;)

Then, last, but not least!
My Birthday gift from hubby, a Polar Heart Rate Monitor!
He know me too well, by selecting a Pink one!
So now I can update my exercising.
And that girlie's is all for now!
I am busy with a lovely tray as a gift for some family.
