New Shop on Etsy & Another Bag!

First of all apologies for becoming tardy with my blogging! I can assure you that the reason is that I am unbelievably busy and there simply aren't enough hours in the day.  I am not just simply sitting on the couch eating jaffa cakes, drinking coffee and watching Johnny Depp films, honestly, although that does sound good now I have mentioned it... mmmm .. ok and back in the room.

Todays creation is made from an old suit, so my advice to Cheryl would be don't chop his suits up send them to me and I will make you some very nice bags from them, especially the Saville Row ones! 

I love the lining on this one, it was an old piece of material I rescued from my local charity shop and brightens up what would otherwise be quite a dull bag!

This is a variation on my first clothing related bag which was this made from an old tweed jacket again rescued from a charity shop.  Both bags can be bought from my shiny new shop over at Etsy,  I am still on Folksy but the lure of being stateside became too strong!  So drop by and give me some love if you are passing!

So if you have an old item of clothing that needs a new identity, drop me a line and we will see if I can transform it into my clothing protection programme.

I love this clothes/bag revamping idea Elissa. I was thinking of making some pinstripe cufflinks but have just not got around to it yet! However, would you consider making a mens 'handbag' in this vein?
