NOW £16 (previously £22)

A beautiful and unique bag featuring a hand-embroidered flap, toning woven fabric, a cord strap and a lovely vintage leather button for closure.

A lovely piece of 'felt', up-cycled from a vintage cardigan, has provided a background onto which to embroider a lovely posy of flowers using ribbons, vintage fabric, fancy yarns and threads. A toning woven fabric has been used to form the body of the bag - which is interfaced and lined with a printed cotton fabric.

The cord strap is long enough to be worn across the body - it could be shortened to your requested length - please message me at purchase.

The bag closes with a button-hole stitch loop in vintage linen thread over a vintage leather button.

The flap is cut from a vintage cardigan which has felted to give a lovely texture. The fabrics, ribbons and threads used in the embroidery to were chosen to compliment the felt. The bag was constructed to fit the flap!!
