News from March, April, May and June 2013

052March, April, May and June have gone by in a blur of bag making commisions. Some photos are on the ‘Photo Gallery 2013’ page.The leather flap/linen bags are proving so popular i had to have a list and work through a strict date when ordered rota. Luckily everyone was pleased to wait their turn and a few examples i had made to show people were snapped up immediately. A couple of lovely people have just taken delivery of their third commisions, as each time they saw a new example ordered another. The smaller versions feature a leather lace strap, larger versions a linen strap, all are lined in posh fabrics for example Liberty lawn etc.The outer fabrics are linens in new and vintage French, English, Liberty, Laura Ashley and Sanderson fabrics. All finished off with an internal  toggle or button fastener and vintage button detail on the leather flap,most have a  leather inside pocket for holding those essentials.Now i’ve finally caught up, i’m having a couple of weeks off to make myself a few things and then starting on the stock for the 8th Sept fair at Easton Walled Garden, plus bags for other things that are in the pipeline.
