Vintage applique yellow flower make up bag or purse F6

Vintage applique yellow flower make up bag or purse F6
Love this


This is a sweet make up bag or little purse for coins or keepsakes.
Its softly faded design has a fashionable vintage appeal.
The lovely applique work is sewn by hand with tiny stitches and has a soft colour pallet of washed out yellows blues and greens. There are two decorative mother of pearl buttons on the front.
This would make a great gift for anyone with a love for old textiles.

The applique on the front is backed with soft cotton to give it some stability.

It is lined with a pretty floral poly cotton fabric.

The back is made from re-cycled blue denim.

There is a practical finger loop to the top RHS.

Blue zip fastening measures 16 cm.

The width is 16 cm.

The length is 17 cm.

This purse is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.

I like to use recycled materials as much as possible in my work. Your purse will arrive creatively wrapped in clean re-used packaging.

It will be sent out with proof of postage by 2nd class Royal Mail, and will require a signature.


I have collected and admired these appliqued tablecloths, napkins and tray cloths for many years, particularly the tiny, tiny hand stitching, and the lovely colour combinations.
Those that meet the “too tea stained to keep” standard get given a new lease of life as purses, bags or cards.
I like to think that this unknown needlewoman is still being appreciated, as her work is turned into something pretty and practical once again.
