Linen & Lace

Some more stitchery from me and variations on a theme, as I have made similar versions before. Simple soft quilted purses made from linen.

Featuring my favourite vintage lady, Lily Elsie. The images are from the graphics fairy and Imagenes vintage gratis and were used in GIMP to make the digital image, then printed on cotton. I have been using gimp more recently as I want to incorporate more digital images in my sewing.

I'll be back at the end of the week with a new Fashionable Stamping Challenge and my first post for the Stampsmith.

Take care and have a lovely day. It's a very soggy one here as it has been raining continuously for the past three days. Oh the joys of an English summer.

Happy Crafting xx

Hi Paula. This is a drop-dead gorgeous bag! The inside pattern and the lace on the front (not just stuck there) look fantastic!!!

Paula I simply LOVE all your makes - they are always so perfect and exquisite. This is so wonderfully vintagely (word?) pretty. We are supposed to have a mini heatwave this weekend!! Nicola x
