Fruity Carrier Bag Holder

Today I finished off my carrier bag holder.  I have needed one of these for a while as I have carrier bags coming out of my ears and they were just shoved in a cupboard in the utility room which was a complete waste of space.  So now I have a lovely new holder for them :) 
A plain sewn holder just wasn't really me to I made some fruity friend from felt and appliqued them of by hand to just add a bit of fun to it.
Cheeky cherries, sunshine orange slices and a bitter lemon......
 ....a moustached kiwi, baby blueberries and sour grapes!  Heehee!

I searched a few tutorials to get the basic size and measurments and used the one below fot this, but I didn't use the patchwork idea, as although it is really lovely I already had an idea of what I wanted.


  1. How cute! I love the fruit appliques :D I love that they have faces!

  2. I like your skill with the felt and needle! Just too cute!
