I have made a pink and striped small bag with pink lining. I have embroidered and hand appliqued the design to the bag with embroidery thread. I chose the materials for their colours and flowers, so creating a warm and peaceful feel to the design. I added the green seed beads and mother of pearl buttons to the design to capture and reflect the light. The four fruit beads add to the fun nature of the design.

Lovely Girl hand sewn applique small bag
All my designs are one of a kind using applique and embroidery. They are hand crafted and take many hours to complete. I use a variety of materials, mostly cotton and polycotton and I repurpose some of the patterned materials within the designs. The embellishments and embroidery thread are new.
Personalisation: If you like my designs but want something more personal, I can work with you to create the design you want within your budget. Please email me.
Uses for the bags
The obvious use is for shopping but I have other ideas.
Clothes storage: Use the bag to store pyjamas or a nightie or other more personal items. The bag can then be placed on a shelf or in a drawer ready to be easily brought out and placed on the bed or in luggage.
Treasures or trinkets: I have made one for each of my children and they store the items from their last day at school.
