This sweet piece of vintage embroidery was once the corner of a tray cloth. Altho one end was damaged, this thatched house with its pretty cottage garden was in good condition, and just the right size for a little zip up bag. Perfect for make up, headphones, or as a floating pocket inside a tote bag, this is a practical as well as a pretty little bag. It would make a great present for someone who loves vintage textiles, perhaps as a gift for someone who is learning to embroider, or as a virtual hug for anyone needing one right now.

The bag is stitched onto a cotton backing to strengthen it, but it is still a soft little bag, and the back is made from recycled blue denim, to give it some edge.
The width is 16 cm and the height is 15 cm with a 16 cm purple zip fastening.
There is a hook so you can hang it up and dream of country cottages, and there are 3 pastel vintage buttons on the front.
It is lined with a pastel patterned vintage cotton, and finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
Please wash on a short cool cycle, and leave to dry naturally.
I like to recycle. your bag will be posted out wrapped in clean, recycled packaging from my hoard, and posted out as Royal Mail 2nd class.


This lovely old fragment of table linen was given to me by another folksy maker. I have tried to do it justice!
