As you may know I possess only one pair of shoes (last time I wrote about this I had two pairs but since then one set have met their demise...). I am not overly fond of 'proper' shopping and have extra aversion to shoe shopping. I do have lots and lots of bags (and purses....). . I have only shown a flavour of them here (!!!). I am sure that if I could make my own shoes I would also own lots and lots of shoes...
A few years ago I also made this bag....sorry that the photograph is not brilliant - this is my 'Deer Bag' used intermittently but extra focus around Christmas time when 'Deers' are in (seasonal bags, seasonal tablecloths, seasonal purses.....). Twinned with some deliciouso fabrico from the ?1930s (rich linen and wonderful rich pattern) ("We are still waiting...")
Dug out an old photo of some car boot purchases from September 2010 (that precise only because the photographs are dated automatically!). A lovely soft tapestry with an equally lovely rose fabric bag (from the 1930s again perhaps?) and a complete roll of rose fabric (from the 1950s the seller told me...I have it logged that it cost £5 for the entire roll!).
The one below is a travelling bag - suitable for longer journeys to Bath for example...("Do you think that she is ok?")
Also a few years ago I made the bag below - if I remember correctly this tapestry cost about a pound (as they usually are) - this is known as my 'Green and Pleasant Land' bag. ("What! You name your bags"!!!)
I have been watching this tapestry for sale on ebay and it sold for £38.....today I am unpicking ALL tapestry bags...what the blazes have I been thinking of.....ho ho
"Now we understand...."
PS Due to kind words I am quite determined to make an extra, extra nice embroidered purse and sell it!!! Once I have figured how much that would be...I will not be on Dragon's Den any time soon....
