Embroidered Bag Featured in Homespun Magazine
I always enjoy clicking through Homespun magazine and discovering all the lovely projects on offer. Although this month I was extra excited to receive my copy because I have a feature article and project in the August edition. It's a small bag decorated with two hand embroidered, patchwork pockets. Ideal for storing all those sewing bits and pieces. Here's a picture of what it looks like:
As you can see it includes a matching angel to hold your embroidery scissors so that they will always be close at hand.
I was also pleased to see that Homespun has included a special on making items for a fete. Something I have been very busy doing over the last couple of weeks. So I was very glad to have some new ideas to work with. Fellow designers and friends Rosalie Quinlan and Leanne Beasley have both made some cute little projects that I'm sure will tempt many buyers on the day. Thanks ladies. I have already made up 10 of the little angels and hope to start on the hearts soon (when I find some spare time!).
PS I'll post some pictures soon of the craft items I have made for the school fete just in case you have a fete coming up soon as well
