Shop Announcement:

Hi there and welcome to my shop. Here you will find little fragments of embroidery, faded vintage, and sparkling new remnants made into something pretty and practical once again.
Altho postage is still taking a little longer than usual, it is getting through, so please be patient while you wait for your order. I will always let you know when I have posted it out.
I will be putting new things on the shelves throughout July, so please do stop by for a rummage, and thank you for choosing to visit me at Folksy.

Zip-up make up bag, purse or cosmetics bag with vintage floral embroidery

Zip-up make up bag, purse or cosmetics bag with vintage floral embroidery
Love this


This sweet zip up bag is made from a section of a vintage tablecloth with a front design of a lovely old hand embroidered floral spray. Perfect as a little make up or cosmetics bag, it would also make a pretty Summer clutch or purse. There are three vintage buttons on the front, and the back is made from blue recycled denim to give it some edge. It would make a great present for a vintage lover, to take to a Summer wedding, or as a Mothers day present.

The embroidery has been stitched onto cotton to strengthen it, but it is still a soft little bag.
It measures 20 cm by 15 cm with a purple zip opening of 20 cm.
The front is made of vintage embroidered linen with 3 buttons, and the back is made from blue recycled denim.
The lining is a pretty pink floral cotton, and the bag is finished with my own embroidered name tag.
You can use the finger hook for twirling, or to hang up your little bag as a piece of craft work in its own right.

I like to reuse when I can. Your bag will be posted out using some clean, recycled packaging, and sent by Royal Mail 2nd class post.


It so hard for me to walk past these vintage linens at car boots and charity shops. I think they are beginning to be valued once again. Often so beautifully worked, they call out to me to be reused, and appreciated one more time.
There is a matching purse to this in a lovely peach colourway also in my shop right now, as well as a matching embroidered lilac lavender bag .
