Im Back!!!

Hello there!  I am sorry the blog has been quiet so long!  I have had so much happened over the time I have been away and I hope to spend some time over the next little while updating you on all things Clares Place.

I really wanted to show off my latest patterns that were just released with Creative Abundance at Houston and the Australian Quilt Markets (trade shows)  But I realised I never shared releases that occurred prior!  I apologise!  Life and difficult personal situations took over.

So lets start with the Gillian Bag:
The Gillian Bag was such a fun bag to make and is made from beautiful fabrics from the talented Helen Stubbings her beautiful fabric collection is called Primrose Sands for Red Rooster Fabrics (2014)

This bag finishes up at approximately 13" wide x 27" tall (33cm x 69cm) including handles.
The Gillian Bag is a stylish and practical shoulder bag and is the perfect project to use fabrics from your stash.  Featuring a sweet appliqued front pocket and pieced back pocket both of which are the perfect size for keeping your key’s and other necessities.  This bag is large enough to fit a binder making it the perfect size for a market or project bag.

Next up we have two creative cards or mini patterns.  These would make great teacher gifts or Christmas pressies (yes Christmas is less than 30 days away! Yikes :s)

Spring Flowers is a wonderful creative card you can make for (and even with your child) as a great craft activity.
Spring Flowers is a stylish pony tail holder just perfect for the little girl in your life.  Want to change it up a little?  Why not use a flat back button and add a brooch clasp at the back to wear it as a brooch.  Spring Flowers is so quick and fun to make you will want to make them for all your friends.   When finished these are approximately 2 3/4" (7cm)
Last of all we have the beautiful Hoop Necklaces.
Hoop Necklaces is a collection of three embroidery designs suitable to fit inside a mini 2.2" (5 cm) hoop  embroidery hoop.

These are such a fun and fast stitching project (and very addictive).  The hoops are from Dandelyne for those wanting to get organised.

Thanks for sticking by me.  I will be back with more updates soon! :)

If you would like to purchase this or any other Clares Place pattern contact your local quilt store and ask them to get one (or more) in for you.  If you are interested in stocking Clares Place patterns in your store please contact my wonderful distributor Naomi at Creative Abundance.
