Love this


Vintage cotton tote, shopping, or book bag, with gardens, herbs and bees design.
The pretty gardening pictures all over this sturdy little bag are reminiscent of illustrations in old books. Herb gardens, bee hives and apple blossom cover the surface. Made from a lovely piece of vintage curtain fabric, the colours are limited to cream, rust and green, with an old fashioned sepia feel to them.

This simple unlined bag still packs a punch. It is made with strong French seams, and has a small internal pocket, so you will always know where your keys are.
It measures 32cm wide
It is 36cm long
The inside pocket measures 15cm by 12cm, and is edged with bias binding and finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
There is a facing inside around the top edge to give it some body, and a neat finish.
There are two shoulder straps each measuring 63 cm long to fit snuggly over your shoulder, but short enough to use as a handheld bag if you prefer.
The bag will roll up tightly to fit into its own little wallet measuring 14 cm by 18 cm , and will nestle neatly inside your handbag.
My bags are handmade, and so the pattern placement may vary a little from bag to bag. Same lovely fabric tho.
This bag can be hand washed, or put on a cool, short machine wash, and ironed when it is oh so slightly damp.

I like to reuse where possible. Your bag will arrive wrapped in clean, re-cycled packaging.
It will be posted out by Royal Mail 2nd class with proof of sending.


What a great gift for a gardener. This little bag with its quotes from William Lawson is perfect for storing and carrying allotment essentials. It’s also a handy little shopper, and with its matching wallet, it helps you to avoid using plastic bags. It would also be perfect for carrying your holiday reading.
