Eclectic Elements

 I've been beavering away in crafter corner, so much so that I seem to lose track of time and now it is nearing the end of November. I thought I would show you what I have been up to. Yep you guessed it more sewing. I recently took delivery of some seriously scrummy TH eclectic elements fabric and it was crying out to be patchworked and turned into some bags.

I made a satchel style bag with natural linen bias binding, piping and adjustable strap. It has an internal zipper and magnetic fastener. It was a real challenge to sew as the layers were very thick and if I make this style again I probably won't make it in patchwork I've learnt my lesson!

These two are a style I make over again as they are so roomy and are the casual across body style I like.

 I already had this butterfly fabric which I used for the lining and felt it worked well with the TH fabrics.

 I have listed this bag on my folksy shop here

Promise I won't leave it too long before my next post.

Happy Crafting xxx
