Handmade Linen Hearts

I made these little hearts using linen that had a previous life.
They've been hand embroidered with French knots and chain stitch then stuffed with polyfill. A little silky ribbon has been attached to the back so that they can be used as ornaments. I use mine as a pin cushion cause you can never have enough pin cushions if you love sewing.

Half Moon Bag

This is my newest bag design and I have based it on the half moon shape which I really love. With the half moon shape there are no corners, so you can see all your essentials at a glance.

It is zippered at the top with an extra long strap making it easy to fling over your shoulder.
It's great for those little outings where you want to have your hands free for other things like taking photos or making calls.

It is made out of a lush black corduroy cotton and a beautiful red and cream Japanese inspired decorator fabric.

I've included some lovely accent features like the hand covered button, nickel ring and tab detail.
