I have, at last, found time (TWO WHOLE HOURS) to go into my workshop
NOT for a soft furnishing commission,
but just for ME,
I can start to fill my Folksy shop again!
After a rummage through my fabric stash
I found some linens and gingham
to make a couple of bags.
Some recycled linen printed with lovely
full blown roses
in browny pinks and zesty greens.
Nice and big, to take shopping,
with a stiffened base and
handles long enough to wear the bag on
There is also a zipped pocket inside to hide your purse
A nice lining too!
The other bag is BIG!
Just the thing to take on holiday to carry all the
The fabric is a beautifully soft vintage floral linen
in gorgeous muted colours.
The back of the bag is in plain linen.
A pleated gingham frill tops the bag and
the handles are nice and long to wear it
comfortably on your shoulder,
or over your arm
(too long to carry in your hand though
- the bag will drag on the ground -
unless you are very tall or have really long arms!).
Lined in gingham, the bag has two handy pockets in one!
For more information about these bags go to my Pretty Bags page .
More sewing to show soon (I hope)!!
