A small bundle of gorgeous linen has been awaiting quality sewing time for two months. However, last week I decided to take the plunge and put it to good use!!

I've contemplated for weeks what to do with this fabric and have decided to make some limited edition clutch bags. Limited edition, because I only have a small amount of each piece of coloured linen (and am unable to get hold of any more) and clutch bags due to the fact that they are quite adaptable (pencil cases, cosmetic purse, etc).

This is the first bag - made from gorgeous dusky pink linen and hand embroidered!

The hand embroidery depicts a small bird and some greenery.

Here's a closer look!

There's also a Liberty lawn pin brooch to co-ordinate with...........

...........the lining.

I hope you like it - I have just married up four more pieces of linen with four liberty designs so before too long the purse above will not be the only one in my etsy shop!!!

I've just happened across your Etsy show and am absolutely blown away by your work! It's so inspiring! I LOVE your owl appliques ... I might have to have a go at something similar for my daughter's room :o) xxx
