Nature has been providing a wealth of inspiration in recent weeks. Beautiful alliums, with their mauve, star like flowers, have particularly captured my attention .
In addition to teaching sewing I’m designing and making a range of bags, using upcycled fabrics I’ve collected over the years. I love working with denim, it’s very hard wearing and provides an excellent background for appliqué and embroidery. Each bag is unique. I add different colours of topstitching and I vary the details in the embroidery on each one too.
I’ll be adding more as the days go by. Share Folksy with your friends and people you think will appreciate these bags. I make them with attention to detail and offer a follow up repair service too. No fast fashion here! I’m still enjoying bags I made around 16 years ago. Pretty good going I reckon.
Any questions? Feel free to drop me a line.
