I thought its about time I started filling up my Etsy shop, 
And I think some tweeds are just the thing...
Made one up today & desperately want to keep, buuuuuut I really
can't keep doing that so into the shop it goes.

I really like the fabric here, the green was actually an old skirt I got when a dear 
old friend gave me a bag full of tweedy scraps, all beautiful, all pure wool, & all going to be 
made into bags for selling.

A bit of applique & some buttons, the silver rings from an old bag destined for the recycling bank
And tah dah, it looks all brand new :)

I lined it in a lovely soft navy satin, scraps from Sophies grad/prom dress, I usually use 
quilting cotton for lining, but this is better with the wool fabric.
All in all I'm pleased with my lil effort.........hope it sells :o !!!!!!!!!!!

a few more grannies

And now its time to put the feet up, I'm totally knackered, don't know if thats just 
Irish slang, but it means I def need a rest :D

Have a sweet weekend

  8. Karen, your handmade goodness it beautiful, I am loving your patchwork colors especially the reds for some reason, perhaps because we are heading into winter the red is a nice bright cheerful color. I thought knackered was an Aussie term, must be universal lol, I have been feeling the same for over a week now :(
    Take care xx Sandi
