Use some of your Stash at the Hatters

Hello Friends and Followers. Thank you for all the wonderful messages this last week and to the people who joined in with us at Out of a Hat Creation for the Locks and Keys Challenge

This week at the Hatters we are asking you to use some of your stash to make anything that you like.
 We have made our projects from some material and lace that were in a  parcel sent to us by Lorraine. There were other things in the parcel as well and I have put some of  them in the bag I made for this week's project together with some other things from my own stash. If you would like to win the bag and stash all you have to do is leave a comment on the post at Out of a Hat or enter your own project into this challenge-if you do enter the challenge then your name will go twice into the hat. Next Thursday morning, before we publish the new post there, I will put all of the names into a hat and draw one out to be the winner. The name will be announced in next week's challenge post.

Here is the finished bag which you will win with the goodies inside.

This was the bag before and all I did was made a shape to fit over the bottom part of the bag then make the flowers from the lace and some of the material that was left over.

This is a little lavender pillow made from the last bit of material and some lavender seeds I collected from our garden.

Hope you will visit Janet, Sandra and Florence to see what they made for this week.

Love Chrissie xx
