Quietly before Christmas I set myself the challenge to create a pattern based on the Brides beautiful shoes and vintage purse.
Two of the designs lent themselves to small scale and with the help of Spoonflower who digitally supplied small swatches from my pattern design I began to cut and sew. The scale was reduced from the one seen below,
My sewing machine and I have a testing relationship but all went well I am pleased to say. Choosing coloured ribbon was almost as satisfying as wrapping the lavender bags in gift wrap!.
The pattern below can be bought in my little shop .By the Meadow One sample swatch at 8x8inches was just enough to make one lavender bag in very fine cotton lawn which is ivory in colour.
The second pattern was a tossed repeat which I am hoping to place in my shop in the next few weeks.
Sarah was very suprised on opening her present!
