White Lace Bags with a Grey Tag

It is always such a joy when a customer appreciates
your creativity enough to place an order
for an item from you.

This is a bag which I created using a number of
vintage doilies, tray cloths, lace, threads and
a pretty pearl button

this is the result!

and then I realized that my client had mentioned
that she loved pearls also so I added a set of 
faux string pearls here.

Two of the large three roses were fashioned by myself
and I used various threads, angora fleece with some 
seam binding.

The handle was fashioned from a hand crocheted edging piece
I owned which I laced with cream sari silk ribbon.

The whole of the inside is lined with a cut lace doily
and closed with a metal fastener.

This image shows the back from a Battenberg lace doily.


Now this second bag which is unclaimed at this stage
should anyone be interested in purchasing it!

 is also created from a number of vintage doilies, laces,
roses, seam binding, an upcycled  embroidered
white cotton blouse

and a most delicate handkerchief 

 which I have embellished  with more lace
and stamped with this image which I am so fond of.

 The opening is lined here from the collar of the
blouse and adorned with more seam binding and
some matching faux pearls.

The back of the bag was created with a crazy patchwork
effect with the side seams made from dyed scrim.

Finally I thought I  would show you this little tag
which I created for Wendy of
with a little gift that went to her.
You have to be very affected by lace to appreciate the
layers of lace in this one - LOL!

 I used this very favorite image in greys which

 go so beautifully with the white, cream and black lace
don't you think?

I'm linking all of these to Becky's
Blissful Whites Wednesday at and
Grey Dey Thursdey at Petite Michelle Louise blog.
So do pop over and check out all the inspirational
 white and greys there.

Thank you for all of your lovely visits here.
I'm trying my best to reciprocate!

Wishing you Happy Days!

  16. Lol, yes very fond of lace indeed :) Thank you sweetie (both for the tag+gift and for mentioning my little space in blogland), it's such a beautiful tag and I'm admiring it whenever I'm working at my desk (where it has its own little corner at the moment). I started creating with some of the laces you sent me. Gosh, that's not easy, because I hardly dare using them, lol! Your bags are so gorgeous again, the new owners must be very well pleased with them. The roses of the first one are delightful and the embellishing on both of the bags is glorious. Wishing you a sweet week with love and peace. Big hug
