Applique Bags and Silk Cushions.

We had some beautiful bags created on the ”Tart up a Tote Bag’ course in Halifax last weekend. The course covered the fabric applique and the embellishment with simple embroidery.

Lots of lovely bags ! A few people went away with plans to go into mass production before Christmas, so if you recognise any of the above ladies you could be in luck !

My lovely assistant Ella helped everyone with their applique and stitch, and my lovely niece Hannah came along to help Ella ! They both managed to start making their own bags too.

Finally, ( more pictures than words today due to time constraints !) , a photo of the cushions I have devoted my time to over the past couple of weeks. They were on a trade stand at the Decorex Show in London last week, complete with matching lampshades in silk Ikat and linen.

Time to go and get organised for our Goldwork day next week !
