Thoughts of France

As the sun shone today I began to dream of my forthcoming trip to France… lazy days to enjoy the surrounding countryside of the Loire region. I was planning a sewing project for my Etsy shop as stocks are getting low! With thoughts of France still in my mind, I was drawn to this beautiful piece of grey linen fabric with sunflowers that I’d purchased – I suppose attracted at the thought of fields of sunflowers in Provence!

I love this roomy shoulder bag. Although made for my shop, I am tempted to make another for myself ready for my trip! Perfect for a day out, ¬†far too nice as a picnic bag but I’d certainly fit plenty of baguettes in this!

Winter Tweeds

I have to confess I have a passion for tweed! The moment winter arrives I begin to make new bags for my shop from this versatile fabric which never dates. Hence the Harris tweed ipad bag I currently have in my shop! So this weekend I decided to make another tweed bag, in Scottish tweed wool – the one shown here – for my Etsy shop. Made from a lovely thick brown/khaki/ stone checked tweed with a splash of rich turquoise and a border edge of khaki linen.
