It´s raining purses

I am one of those, who have a pouch for everything. I keep some in my handbag (one for coins, other for makeup and still one for miscellaneous) and more can be found around the house. There´s one for pens, other keeps hair clips, pins and bobbles in order and there are some in my crafting space too (for lace, gift trims).

I have been sewing these little purses because I am almost out of these tweeds, and these pretty ones do not take that much. And to be honest I made some even I would have had fabric for a bigger bag too just because these are so cute (my opinion but cannot help it).

I have said that earlier already but tweed and needle felting go greatly together. These fabrics have wool in them so they blend beautifully. I also have pretty zippers in all imagining colors so the color combinations are almost endless...

...some more subtle that others but cute all the same.

It also seems that birdies will be the stars of these little purses - and who am I to disagree?

Happy week, everyone!

Thanks Mia, I hope that you can comment on my new blog? It has only been set up this evening so fingers crossed that will sort out soon. If not I will see if I have set something up incorrectly! Speak soon, Jane X

Those purses are so adorable. I have some lovely small pieces of tartan left over and may try to make one. Fingers crossed!

Dear Anne,

Men are like that sometimes :) And yes, some laughing here too when my current MOST IMPORTANT pouch is missing with MY LIFE inside and we turn whole house inside out just to find it sitting inside one of my (too many) handbags...

...but I just love pouches so ;)

Happy day, my friend!


Mia said...

Dear Pam,

Please do not shut up, I like you around and commenting ;)

These little pouches are quite quick to make and do not require that much of material so I am sure your tartans will probably be more than perfect to this! Happy sewing!

Many warm and sunny greetings from Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
