Did some free motion machine embroidery on this Snazzy Slouch (pattern from #chriswdesigns ) made with recycled denim. Poppies one side, daisies the other. Hardware from #bobbingirl , porcelain blue 22” handbag zipper from #uhandbag
Just finished my second U-Totia tote bag from @handbag definitely better with the woven interfacing. Made the corners from some faux leather from stash and handles with straps from my old wheelchair - think it works. The Chicago screws were really fiddly but certainly add a nice touch 😉#utotia#uhandbag#totebag#lecienfabrics#linen#woveninterfacing
Finished my wool tweed rucsac!!!! A true #labouroflove 😄😄 I made everything myself except the metal parts and the actual adjustable back strap. It has two large front pockets with very strong magnetic fasteners. Inside is huge with a good sized inner zipped pocket and 3 slip pockets. There is also a reinforced base for stability. It really did take me a long time due to work and the fact that my sewing machine didn't like the wadding I used to give the bag structure. (it kept sticking to the feed dogs). Lots of tequniques learned. Snaps, grommets, inner pockets, binding and D-ring attachments. PHEW!!! Will never make another - though I have a fair bit of tweed left! This will be my in flight bag for my hols to Germany and Iceland. 🎒🌍📸🛫😊😊😊 #handmade#handmadebags#handmadehandbags#uhandbag#tweed#rucsacs#rucsac#backpack#backpacks#handbags#travelbags
I'm trying to finish this khaki tweed rucsac/backpack in time for my holidays. Woollen tweed fabric with cotton bias binding trim and tabs and metal hardware to finish. I cheated and bought a ready made strap which will be attached last. It's got a light coloured flowery cotton lining and will have a zipped interior pocket and 3 stitched interior pockets. Will try to finish it by tomorrow. 😁😁😁💜💜💜💜 Based on a pattern by Lisa Lam of U-handbag fame.
I was recently asked by the lovely ladies at @uhandbag to do a bridal design handbag with their brand new gorgeous frames. Who would say no to get to design something with these beauties?! This one features a diamanté clasp making it absolutely perfect for a bridal design. Covered in an ivory satin and white voile overlay giving it a glittery effect in the light. These frames are now available on @uhandbag and I will be making some more bags with this frame soon. #handmade#handbags#bags#bag#uhandbag#diamante#bespoke#unique#custom#daisy#wedding#bridal
