Sewing for Days

I have been sewing for days, getting ready for a Talent for Textiles Fair at Calstone House, Calne, Wiltshire on Friday 12th June. I have so much fabric hanging around my house I am having a blitz and am making up as much as I can.
These bags are made from an assortment of vintage fabrics and are just basic shopper size but made with lovely fabrics. My favourite is the flowery one with the duck egg blue background.
I have used vintage french linen and metis for extra strength.
I am selling these bags for £18. If anyone would like to buy one please let me know before Thursday as I shall be taking them with me to Calne.
Now that I am in stitching mode again I have lots of ideas for things to do as well as a commission to make some corsets.
I have put more detailed photographs of the bags in to my photostream on flickr. Just click on the badge at the side.
