A Gift For A Friend


My lovely & oldest friend made a few hints that she would like a patchwork bag, so this is what I came up with. Of course it had to have a matching purse, which I added a little hand stitching. It is made with various linen and cotton fabrics from my ever expanding fabric stash, which is now taking over the house.


My sewing machine does a lovely applique or blanket stitch

  and some gorgeous satin stitches.

Have a lovely day, I did see a glimpse of the sun earlier, so hoping it keeps the rain at bay

Happy Crafting XXX

This is just gorgeous Paula, love the colour, the little heart and the detail on the strap of the bag. Really pretty, Can I ask what sewing machine you use Paula? I have been looking for a machine for a while but there are so many, and such a scale of prices. Thanks huni x
