I've been trying to think about how I could add things for Christmas that would stay true to Button Fayre and so when I came up with my idea for smaller cotton canvas bags to use as gift bags, or just on their own as presents, I was thrilled.
These bags are smaller than my shopper bags and measure 32cm x 26cm so still a brilliant size.
Firstly I freestyle machine embroidered a design onto some fabric shown below.
Isn't it pretty? I wanted the leaves to be able to flay and fray a bit over time which will look so beautiful.
Then I decided on an overall shape and cut that out and have now sewn it onto the bag and it looks stunning, so vibrant and true to my style.
I think these will make stunning gifts on their own and as gift bags to put all your presents in too....they don't necessarily have to be for Christmas either but I'm going to design a few in Christmas colours and now get thinking of other ideas for my Christmas album, exciting!
