1:12 shopping bag and stoneware jars.

 I made the shopping bag from a 5p sample and  plain fabric (from an old pillowcase). The rope is made from waxed thread (I ran the thread over beeswax, it makes it easier to handle and hold a shape too).  There are videos on youtube for a rope braid (hairstyle tutorials).  Easy to do, once you get the hang of it.

And the jars are painted, varnished and ready to be placed, placed where though, Im not sure.

And my break from this, didn't last long. Comparing to the last photo I took of it,  Im slightly shocked it hasn't changed much, after the hours I put into it. This is going to take a very long time. 


  1. The little bag is wonderful and even hangs perfectly, i think your stone jars are all great and cant wait to see them sat in place.

    1. Thanks Tony. The beeswax on the thread gives the illusion of "weight". It will be quite some time before the jars find homes, the kitchen is too small for all of them and so far the kitchen is the only room with anything in it :D

  2. My compliments for your incredible patience on the rug Sarah, I can only imagine how painstaking it must be. But it's looking very good, you have a talent for it, which is a good thing, bying a rug like that would cost a small fortune.


Thanks for your comment :)
