Spring better arrive soon! In the hope to speed along the sunshine and long days – I’ve been getting on with the sewing and created a few ‘newbies’. One of them being the newly striped union jack purse. Although the union jack idea is not new to Lady Joon – the striped version is fresh and has already attracted attention from Etsy bloggers.
How lovely is it to see all the autumn colours out? Yes, I know its getting chillier but it is also so pretty in the autumn with all the leaves whisping around. Inspired by this is my autumn purse on a custard-yellow hand dyed cotton. “It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.” P. D. James
Today’s purse is following the trend of quilted bags which I think look really great. The quilted purse here today is made from dyed cotton with black cotton lining and sturdy nickel frame. The result looks great and the colour is very summery in green.
