Hand-made Bags & Little Quits, Second-hand Books
My linen bags are all individually designed to be different in terms of style and decoration. Each one has its own personality and showcases an artistic decoration. Embroidery, applique, crazy quilting, hand stitching and much more are their unique embellishment. Each one is made with care and designed to be used even though displaying extra special finishes. These bags stand out from the crowd in terms of design but are useful and beautiful items to enhance a summer outing or a wedding guest outfit, or just to enjoy for its own sake.
The Little Quilts that I make are resilient, washable and interesting back and front. They are about 36″ square or more and designed to be loved by children and adults. Usually the quilt’s theme will include a colour scheme supporting the machine embroideries on the front with a backing fabric which enhances the top of the quilt. Made to be used in a variety of ways including as a play blanket on the floor for baby, to cuddle on the sofa, to learn from the individual embroidered motifs and to be carried around like a favourite toy by a toddler.
Adults would also find one of my Little Quilts a comfort over knees on a cold evening, or as a throw on the sofa or bed, or a comfort blanket as a passenger on long car journeys. Because these quilts are made to be looked at and enjoyed they can also enhance a plain wall as a decorative feature in a child’s or adult’s room.
