This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

Marvelous Mauves

I found this exquisite panel of hand embroidery recently.

The attention to detail was delicious!
It seems it had been beautifully produced many years ago, but had never been used or framed...
I bravely took the scissors to the excess linen around it and stitched pieces of vintage fabrics to the sides to create a one-of-a-kind shoulder bag.
The addition of a coordinating sparkly brooch completed it.
The bag sold today :)
