Patchwork treasure chest

This is a work in progress. Its a small soft patchwork box all handmade by myself. Each panel is made seperately and then the box is assembled.

This is a unique one off item measuring approximately  5 " x 5.5". the lid is a styalised flower which is approx 8" x' 8"

This is a work in progress and I need to add a loop fastener and maybe some ''bun'' feet made from fabric balls, not exactly sure yet.

This is my latest bag made especially for Martine. Her colour preferences were deeps reds, greens, mustards and golds. An ethnic flavour was also on the wish list.

BJs Bag

Here is another bag I have been making for a friend of mine. Fortunately she allowed me to do things in my own sweet way so the process was not too restraining. sometimes making something for someone you know can be more restrictive because I tend to worry and faff more because I don't want to produce something they don't like.

Anyhow here are the photos and BJ my friend seems to like it very much :0) making me a happy bunny.

New Patchwork bag

I have really enjoyed making this latest patchwork bag. I was asked by a friend to come up with an idea for a bag for her mum. This is the final result based on the patchwork wallets that I make.

I have used both new and recycled fabrics ranging from old clothing and bedlinen to new patchwork fabrics from the shop. Decorations include old jewellery, buttons, beads and applique.

I am now on a mission to make another bag with a different design but using the same techniques..........so watch this space.
