Latest Flip Flap Purse

One of my makes from the Summer Holidays. I shall be making quite a few of these for Christmas I think. This will go in my Folksy shop, as will some more stash busting items.

I really like gingham for the lining and this is 100% cotton. The button is one of my favourites and I am having trouble finding some more. The loop is made from a nice length of ribbon.

I have added some white machine embroidery to the top section of the denim purse which adds a nice touch without it being too much. I made some smaller versions for the Tea Shop that I supply items for. One did not sell and I shall be listing that one too. It is made using cupcake fabric, I thought I had a photo of it but for the life of me I can not find it! Typical. I made lots of items during the start of the Summer then time ran away with me. Never mind. My Christmas item is finished and the swap badge is nearly done so the sign up can begin later in the week. I visited Creative Stitches at Westpoint in Exeter today so I shall post some of my goodies once I have taken some pictures. It has been a pretty hectic weekend and I have hardly been at home, however the weather has been lovely! May have to switch the fire on the evening soon though.

Have a good week.

I love that clutch bag design. the stitching is a nice touch - gives it a classic 'air'. I think they'll be really popular as Christmas gifts.

What a lovely bag! I agree with you about the evening chill - I always try to leave it until October at least before we light a fire.

your purse is lovely - i am an absolute fan of gingham! I was hoping to go to the show in Exeter but other things got in the way! Maybe next year if you go we could have a bloggy meet up!
