This is a tweedy (with a bit of hemp) bag made from a pattern by Michaela Smith called “Night Owl”. The pattern’s for a cushion but I like bags more. It holds lots & is good for travelling.
These bags are made from this quilt.
It had been languishing in my sewing cupboard for months, so I washed it and made the bags. The fabrics are silks & silk lookalikes.
The binding on the quilt mostly couldn’t be saved but I had some bits of the original left so I cut some more. The original is leftover from making this skirt – still worn after all these years, but now as calf length rather than full length.
I made the original quilt following a holiday on Skye – it represents the view I could see when eating my breakfast.
I’m intending to take these patchwork bags along to Quillies in Rhayader to see if they can be sold alongside my fabric pots.
My favourite tote bag – and believe me I love tote bags… This is a furnishing fabric remnant that I just couldn’t resist.
Gratuitous dog photos!
And this is my jeans bag. Linda asked me to show it ages ago & I just didn’t manage to blog. Sorry!
So you can see I’ve been busy despite my blogging silence. Looking forward to catching up with you all.
Happy New Year
