I won a giveaway

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!

Best wishes
