Spring Bags

After spending most of January on the Anthriscus project, it’s down to work with a vengeance now – I’ve got a table at a small local craft fair in May, and Flora Lou needed more stock from me. Bags is what I like ….

1) Primula Tote

This first one is a straightforward tote – recycled denim jeans in a square patchwork design, mixed with a vintage floral chintz upholstery, lined with an old cotton check shirt – the colours just worked perfectly! Fill it up with everything and take it anywhere ….

2) Anemone small tote

Almost a log cabin … the central flower came from my vintage upholstery sample stash, and the outer is recycled canvas drill, the same front and back, lined with the salvageable parts of a pale gold antique linen table cloth. It’s just *so* pretty! I love this … I might make a variation on the design as a cushion cover as well.

I'd love to hear from you! Let me know what you think ....
