Only bought this in the Threads and Patches closing down sale, thought it was cute...and I have already cut into it!

Often admire for a long time before using.

Love the chunky zips on these.

Had this fabric since last summer and so far had only admired it - finally have cut into it and made these glasses cases and cosmetic bags.

The zips have nice and chunky and have a sparkle to them.

Drawstring bag


I fancied doing something different today, so made this drawstring bag.  Still undecided whether to add a pompom to the drawstring.

I added a slip pocket inside and it has a denim bottom to give it some 'body'.

Had fun planning and making - so will make a few more.

Large Tote

I bought this fabric when I was in Nice a few weeks back.  It is a lovely thick material so decided to make a couple of large bags.  These are not lined, but all seams are 'french seams' so they are all enclosed and will not fray.

I added a largish zipped pocket to the inside.

What do you think?

Lordship Farm and Tea shop

We have a new farm shop not far from here, and they are offering a bit of space to local crafts people.  So I took some things down there a month or so ago, and this week I went and restocked and took a stand with me so that I can hang the bags, and they look far better than in the boxes. 

They sell lots of local produce and have in the tea shop they are baking using local produce too.  Loads of room to eat outside, and a small tea shop inside, and also and under cover area outside too.
