A few weeks ago I was really lucky and won a giveaway ot Primrose Corner the fabric is lovely. This was the first giveaway I had entered so I was delighted to win! - please take a look on the lovley blog and shop - I have since ordered some more fabric and they really do offer a lovely service and some fantastic goodies.
I have been thinking about what to use it for for some time, and stroking it often (am I the only person who does this hoping it will speak to me and tell me what it wants to become?).
As I was starting my new job I thought that a new handbag was needed, and I altered a pattern I had used before so that I could fit it on one of the fat quarters.
I am really pleased with the result and much happier with the closure on this modified bag.
I used one of the smaller bits of fabric for a internal pocket, the spotty fabric was from my stash, and was a barn sale bargin for only a few pennies. It is interlined with curtain wadding that I was given and is adorned with some of my Grandmothers buttons, so the total cost of the bag was less than £1
I took it with me on my first day in the office along with some lovely gifts from the Shabby Chic ladies and it all made me smile to myself lots!
