strawberry shortcake

Last week was quite a busy one with sewing! I have my fair this Saturday so I'm trying to get some stock made to sell there. First on the list was to create my strawberry shortcake range:
Curved a-symmetric Strawberry purse £20

Rounded Strawberry Purse £20

Envelope strawberry purse/mobile case £18

Yummy!!! If you like any of these they are available to buy through my website under the purses section. They are created from 100% cotton with a poly cotton lining (65% polyester/35% cotton) and each one contains a small open pocket for your cards.

I have also been busy working on a commission for Kat of With U In Mind.
Kat liked my allsorts purse fabric (see here) and wanted a slouch shoulderbag in the same fabric. So here is the final outcome :)

Remember, if you like any of the fabrics you see do get in touch and I can create a differet style just for you.

If you are interested in different types of crafts do pop by to 1st unique gifts and have a look at the other great blogs from handmade Monday.
Have a great week!
