This is the one that I managed to complete -
Lined with my favourite of the moment - vintage double damask - replete with vintage Mother of Pearl button (sewn on with vintage Sylko!!), topped with some deliciouso 1940s/50s barkcloth garden fabric. Managed to get this done so that I could watch The Apprentice (mainly for the music!). Very sad to see that by the end of the day this photo is on Pinterest and repinned (or whatever it is) many times over already. I thought that I shared enough with my blog and flickr...
The one below remained handleless for some time - I no longer have it so must have put handles on at some stage.
I made a matching purse for this one here all finished below:
I have been trying to find an older photo of a bag with a marvellous embroidered cottage and garden that I finally finished last year - I put it on Etsy (the one and only thing I have have ever listed there!) for about a day then took it off again in a moment of shyness - I think that that finally went to Australia too...
Next week it will be graphic prints from the 1950s....par exemple:
PS Thank you regarding Pinterest - these last few posts have not appeared there. Sorry again about comments - I can only edit posts by logging on in Blogger and cannot do much more than that. All a bit odd
Thank you for asking Carolyn re: bags - sorry to reply here! I do have another version of the garden embroidery so when the time is right I will make another bag and let you know! On flickr I am also the custards - a bit predictable really!
