I have not finished writing my essay....
A nice little purse - just right for small change and going to the Co-op I think.
Just think - the only one like this in the whole widey world
Lined with 'proper' lining fabric that - so the old label on it says - was part of delivery of sample linings for Burberry macs! Fancy!
My Custards are nearly curdling!!!
Of course we associate The Custard 'brand' with the finest quality and special value! Mary Portas tells us that branding is a good thing
Thank you to those who have asked if I sell the things that I make - one day.
No - Mary Portas did not ask me that!
As the 50s fabric might not be to everyone's taste I also made this as Giveaway Number 2:
Cathedral window patchwork is an old favourite of mine that I have been making since I was a teenager (not making this particular thing since I was a teenager!!!!). I admit that it is a bit fiddly and time consuming so not something that you could go into production with really....
I am spoiling you here with the cathedral window bit as the vintage embroideries are the very last pieces that were sent to me by Cath Kidston when they asked me to make those purses for them. Of course I have hung on to every little bit!!
Vintage thread using for stitching into place!
Dear Maille had very carefully sorted out these threads the other day - do you do that too.... keep the shortest feasible lengths....just in case....of course you do...that is what we do!!
A bit of a fiddle faddle....
Not the neatest of stitching - I still have my rubbish glasses remember!
Oh dear - just noticed a stray thread on the photo above.
In the event of no entries I will claim both prizes as I am in urgent need of both a little purse and potion bag!!!!
I will post to anywhere on the planet so long as you have an address.
Thank you most kindly as always
PS: Just popping back to add that I will run the giveaway for a couple of weeks
