Look out Mary Poppins

Show and Tell Monday

I have always loved the film Mary Poppins, can remember as a child awe inspired when Marp opened her carpet bag and everything including the kitchen sink appeared. Having received a bag of fabric from a neighbour and this beautiful carpet style fabric was inside, what better tribute than to make t modern twist on a carpet bag, 3 machine needles later and metal frame inserted this is the result.

Cream Silk and Pearl Evening Bag

Classic combination of silk and pearls all in cream

An not forgetting the frilly and frothy scarves, purple, to be worn
by those wishing to age disgracefully .

  5. Hi Caroline .. I love your carpet bag .. I too saw Mary Poppins ... 27 times actually .. my dad was in the theatre business so we used to go and watch the matinees .. when I heard the wedding processional on the pipe organ, I knew I wanted to play .. started playing at age 8 and still playing 47 years later .. did you use a pattern for the carpet bag?
