My First Bunting plus an Owl, a purse, a hat and me.

Look I finally made my 1st bunting,What took me the longest is trying to get the template size right so I didnt lose much of the picture.Now I have new ink in my printer I am going to photocopy the picture 1st then cut that as a template so I can get it exactly right.
And Miss 10 made a mini one too.

Was fun and inexpensive to make the book was cheap and the binding was in a bag of lace I bought I glued mine after much thought but some sew theirs like the lovely ones Nick makes.

My Gorgeous owl pendant waiting at the opshop for me.Dunno why he hadnt been nabbed but am glad he wasnt.

A vintage hat come Genie Turban modelled by Miss 8
Can't find info on the brand.
Vintage purse also waiting for me
Rhinestones in clips and a stain inside Any tips on removal?

I grabbed this cape ($2) for my dress ups,truly I didnt even notice Master 2 crying there,he looks like he is begging and I look evil mwahhahhhahh

The bunting is so cute Nelly! Any ideas what the stain in that lovely bag might be? If it looks a little greasy (make up perhaps?) talcum powder to absorb it might help some or some bicarb soda. I don't think they would do any damage either, just be gentle.Love your owl necklace, I have collected several over the years.

I like the bunting! So many options with those. Ahahaha, the cape does make the pic, you can almost see Master 2 saying ala Oliver, "Please Sir/Madame, may I have some more?" To which villain in black cape would surely thunder, "Moooorreee!?" Dunno how to get stain off purse. I used to accomplish a lot with lemon juice, salt and sunshine, but I don't know how that would affect material in this case.
Anyhoo, hope your day is lovely, I am for sleep! G'Night Aussie Friend! TWN
