New bags

Having dabbled in making bags with some old curtains I bought from a charity shop, I thought it was time I used some nicer fabric. And i found the perfect Miss Polly style fabric from Dragonfly Fabrics, an internet site that I spend far too much time on, ogling all the lovely designs they have. And so I made this bag with fabric from the Westfallenstoffe range.

I like the design of the bag, but I can't decide on the brooch. Satin or fabric? I might make both and see which sells the best.

I have a lot of work to do before my first fair at Easter - bags, brooches and headscarfs (pics of them soon) 


  1. Hmm..both brooches look good, but I think the satin one makes it pop a little more...unless it's the lighting. Good luck with your fair...I hope you do very well! :)

  2. Very pretty fabrics. Both brooches look lovely. Good luck with the fair.

  3. Thank you girls, the brooches are just little touches to make the bag more eye catching and thanks for the good luck wishes, first time fairs are always a nervous time xx
