Bird Cages and Dinosaur Feet

I didn't expect to come home with dinosaur feet and a bird cage when I went to the shops this morning. I was only going for hay for the guinea pigs but I ended up with these little beauties...

One very happy boy and only £1.99 in the sale. The only thing is I appear to have promised to make a dinosaur costume to go with the feet! There has been a lot of dinosaur stomping and roaring today.

I also bought this bird cage. Obviously its not a real one but it just looked so pretty. It was £8 so I couldn't resist. I was thinking I could make some little fabric birds to go inside maybe? Better go and have a look on Pinterest! Izzy loves this and has already borrowed it for her bedroom.

The shop also had these cute little boxes for £1.99. So pretty that I bought one for Izzy and one for me!

I also really loved this little suitcase also £1.99. These are really useful of displaying things at craft fairs. I fill them with purses or little things and they look really cute. I'm very pleased with my purchases!

I finally got round to making another dress! Mainly because I am running a little dress workshop at the week-end for some of my #Pinaddicts team and I wasn't sure I could remember how to do it! The fabric was very kindly donated by Allyson

I finished off the ties with some beads. I might have to make another one tomorrow.

I also received a lovely dress from Ellie who contacted me through facebook. A lovely dress made with colourful heart fabric. So pretty! Thanks Ellie.

Total is now 998!
