Textiles have always been a very big part of my creative life
ever since I first began quilting and patchwork
some 40 years ago!
So I have gathered quite a collection of
amazing fabrics and embellishments
over the years!
So recently I stepped back from my usual creativity
where I create more with mixed media
delved into my stash to complete some
projects using these and
some crazy quilting techniques!
I have made many bags and totes over the years
and here are just a few!
Firstly these two Boho shoulder bags
using quite exotic fabrics such as silk velvets,
embroidered silks and brocades
along with gorgeous Indian beaded motives
and lace pieces
plus this next one basically
using cotton and vintage textural fabrics.
The next one is a clutch which I hand stitched
using some textiles from Rajasthan
and some very old hand embroidered braid!
and the second one here is a larger clutch
created from a number of textiles
and embellished with fringing and vintage buttons!
This last item is a rather unusual but sweet
hand sewing carry-all for your needles and pins
with pockets for measuring tape, scissors, etc.
This sits beautifully over your lounge arm rest
and is easily accessible
what an enjoyable little treasure to have
at your side whilst sewing!
These items are now available for sale in
if this suits your fancy.
Thanks so very much for coming to visit me here.
It is so appreciated by me.
Enjoy your day!
