Third sewing class in the first week of a new term! Everyone is busy coming up with new projects for the summer and I am busy dyeing more fabulous colours!
I’ve also been busy making a few bags and the kits to go with them. Of course, living on the South coast of England surrounded by marinas, you’ve just got to have a yacht handbag – and here it is – all made in my hand-dyed fabrics. Kits and instructions are on my website.
This one was inspired by the tubs of tulips outside my front door.
Both these bags – and many of my others – are based on the asymmetrical stripe design of which I’ve become very fond lately. It makes a great background for applique but also has a bit of interest on its own. It looks posh but is actually very easy to cut and piece together and has been very popular amongst my workshop ladies.
