Handmade Monday Number 72
Another Handmade Monday, think we should think of a celebration when we reach 100.
Been quite productive this week with my Parisian collection, stitched on the machine as normal but this time the designs are more like sketches and I love them, fabric used cream linen.
Madam Nightshades Bag
Ideal for a handmade soap, perhaps one of Jane's Rosemary & Pine bars, delicious
Hummingbird Frame Bag
Not sure why but had the idea of a hummingbird in a stitched toile style
More Owls, such a hoot.....
Following on from the call from Tracey at WTY just had to add this cute owl bag
Bridal Keepsake Pillow
I mentioned this last week but had not sent off to my favourite customer, has now arrived safely and she is pleased with the design and have permission to show off to you all. Drama masks, lavender and roses were the brief. I loved doing this project, think because bespoke gives me carte blanche on the creative design front. Plus had to send her a matching silk bag filled with confetti to throw over the happy couple on the day.
Been such a productive week and think a lot of this has been my new regime of planning in advance, getting everything needed to complete a task rather than the usual hunting round for items, then so exhausted cannot be bothered with the stitching. Now how long this super organisation is going to last? well watch this space.
