My creative space

I would have posted yesterday but I was exhausted from walking everywhere. I clocked up 12 Klms just doing my normal Thursday errands on foot. That was on top of normal duties like walking kid to and from school(8.8klms). I may not be getting thinner but I am getting fitter. We won the first round with Midas and consumer affairs made them get our car back to us pronto for independent testing which proved without a doubt we were right, they owe us a new transmission. I hugged my car when I saw it and I am not lying. Enough of that though
I made this today and wanted to share it because for once in a long while I made something for FUN and for ME and this now sits in my creative space finished:)

I spotted these things on hairdressers hips and immediately wanted one for sewing. I made it with scraps from my odd sized fabric pile and an old handbag with perfect sized clips and rings. I knew I was hoarding it for a reason.


It hangs across my shoulder and sits on my right hip at perfect height to grab out my scissors. A bit like a scissor holster yes? So I can sling scissors now, Look out!!!


It works great. Maybe I should whip some up for my shop. Bah, there I go again, turning something fun into work!
check out the ever growing list at Kootoyoo's place of creative spaces. I'm about to grab a coffee to have a peek myself.
Cheers

Go the holster! Very good and just perfect for anyone who tries offering you a Russian wife!!

Bags. I want bags. Should I be looking elsewhere? I do like the cupcake. We're tidying our shed tomorrow but somehow I don't think it's going to be all pretty pink and green.

Hey, good for you for taking time to making something for you. And it's great. Although I am trying to picture when / why / how you might sling scissors..??? I'm thinking that Midas man is lucky for giving your car back. I hope all that car stuff gets sorted out for you.

That's ace. I'm enjoying the idea of you whipping out the scissors "wild west" style.

Yay for the win with the car struggle..I hate dealing with those types of issues...And loving the holster It would be a great addition to my stash of things for sure..

What a good idea. I can never find my scissors, they're always under something or where I last used them. Glad you got Midas sorted out. Elsie
