Hello,
a quick post to show you the latest makes.
After a few weeks of pretty much making nothing, I am back into the swing of making again.
I have a couple of 'Hip Pocket Bags' to show you. I just wanted to explain that the Bows, that embellish the bags, are featured in the current issue of Stampington & Company 'Sew Somerset'. I received the Bow brooches back from USA the other day and decided to rework them a little, changing them from brooches to hip bag embellishments.
The bags are made of hand loomed French linen (this one has an embroidered monogram) with a lining of original Feedsack cotton. The straps are very old curtain header tape (just the loveliest texture). So the fabrics are very special and when they are gone they are gone. If you would like more details, please pop over to my Etsyland.

So very lovely! The use of the header tape is inspired, these bags are interesting and tactile as well! Chrissie x
