Give Away – Tweed Linen Purse

Lots of challenging life things going on around here, meaning my blogging and sewing time may be a bit infrequent from now onwards – I’ll do my best to keep up – but long overdue is the next give away.


When I made the tweed purses a while back, I mentioned that they were quite difficult to line up. Β As you can see, one purse in particular is very ‘out’ so I thought I’d set it aside for a give away (the yellow stitching is machine basting that has now been removed). Β I was about to write that it’s perfect in every other way, but I also notice the inside pocket is on the wrong side…..apart from that, it is a lovely purse!

So with one LHS pocket and dodgy lining up, but with lovely fabrics, the usual hand holding strap and removable rose corsage here it is. Β Please just leave a comment before Saturday 1st December – what!!! December is that close, oh dear, where did the time go – oh, and you can live anywhere, it’s open to all.

BTW, I have managed a few jobs, including some non-sewing (new shelves in my studio) and finally re-upholstering my Gran’s pouffe so I’ll try to get the accompanying posts written soon.

  1. I hope you are ok, I don’t think I like challenging life stuff at all, in this house it’s usually difficult and emotional.
    As for the purse, I think it’s still beautiful, It’s funny when you do a batch of things there is always one thats not quite right πŸ™‚ (and lucky for us as we get the chance to win one yay)
    I’d love to see how your Gran’s pouffe turned out.
    Take care

  2. I hope your ‘challenging life things’ have positive outcomes or silver linings or at least get out of your way quickly! Take care. The purse is beautiful, you are such a perfectionist in your work. I’d love a chance to win. – Jane x

  3. Oh so beautiful and I love it! It will be such a nice advance Christmas gift to whoever the winner will be πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  4. I’m suffering with a few of life’s troubles at the moment, and to top it all, the cooker decided to break and I can’t get anyone to come and fix it until Monday. Hope your ‘challenges’ are nothing too serious and can be worked out without causing too many stresses.
    I’m offering a giveaway as well today, though nothing as beautiful as your purse.
