Made a bag........

Marina and I exchange hand made gifts every now and then

this time I made her a bag
for the main fabric I used a piece of 'raw linen'
it was more open weave than other fabric to I first lined it with thin vilene

a bit of texture and just the right colour


How cute is that bunting and the singing birds, patchwork base (only 121 blocks!)
button detail and magnetic clasp


Design by Anni Downs from her book "The Simple Life"

I might just need one of these myself?

Righto, Gotto Go... I think a song .....
