Eureka! New spring handbag collection begins..

After my eureka moment last week and much cutting out of brown paper, tutting, screwing up of the brown paper, cutting out, sewing and re-sewing here is the first bag of my new collection.  Being an avid Grazia reader and luster of all things designer and alas never being able to afford any of them this collection is inspired by the cluster of new 'it' bags.  However, mine won't break your bank or your back (as they are a lot of smaller & purse friendly), you like what I did there, mmm no ok.  So here is bag one in a lovely fresh springy orange colour.  The buttons are vintage, I know as I tracked them down in the charity shop and they were attached to a lovely old faded piece of card, almost felt criminal to rip them off it, but creative needs must!  So am loving the shape of this one and have lots more material in different colours to go at am thinking there will be a vintage tartan one next!






ooh have also been making lots of these lovely spring coloured kanzashi fabric brooches!
