B is for bags

This was the next thing on my " must do " list and I have had great fun with these, I love red on white and anything to do with letters and numbers, this is just the start , I am just getting into the mood or is it " zone " these days !

Project finished !

I have been longing to have the time to do some creative sewing instead of washing and ironing ! I have had this pile of blanket pieces on view for some time awaiting a few  free days.
When " my Young" headed off back to London I made a start that day .
My other family visitors have been in and out and quite happy to chat while I did the hand sewing so today I completed the project.
I dyed a French sheet for the backing , they are a good weight and weave for backing and dye beautifully.

Hand made felt "mattress buttons " and amazing vintage labels
in this case "antique" I think
Franglais ak Lizzie and myself have a good stash of scrap linen for all your projects and at very good prices, all weights and weaves.
