As I’ve been busy bragging about our new designs lately, I thought that I’d share this bag that we made recently. I bought some beautiful red leather to try working with and was amazed at how easy it was to work with; I cut out my Welsh dragon shape with paper scissors and stitched it on with regular needle and thread. So simple it felt like there must be a catch somewhere but there wasn’t. Hopefully I will get some more leather and have kits available for Malvern show in May. I’m not sure yet how much they will cost, the bag is a good size for a handbag with space for a bit of shopping too, it is fully lined with side pockets, has a zip closure at the top and I love it!
So, guys and gals, what do you think?
We have some really cool cat fabric in store which has been sat on the shelf for a while, so we decided to do something with it and have now created this cushion kit.
I asked ole’ Ginger Tom, a while back, if I could pimp one of her patterns and this is the result. Diz has been busy knocking up this beauty and as you can see she’s done a really good job. Well done Diz I owe you a cream tea…shall I keep it on the slate until we’ve done the weight watcher thing for a few weeks? (We rejoined weight watchers this week…again! We are both brilliant at loosing the weight but absolutely rubbish at keeping it off.)
So back to the project. We have 20 fabric packs priced at £20 each, if you fancy having one either drop me a line here on the blog, ring the shop on 01729 824708 or we will see you next weekend at Malvern show. We will be there again this spring, our pitch is the one right by the front door so you can’t fail to see us. Gillian has been very busy folding fat quarters in preparation for the show and we have heaps of them priced at just £1.50 each. All our fabric is £6 a metre for best quality craft cotton, none of that cotton poplin rubbish which wears and goes threadbare too easily on the seams; so ideal if you need backings. I have topped up my stock and have loads of civil war type prints as well as lovely fresh and bright prints superb for summer. If you are going to the show please stop by to say hello.
