Vintage nunnery bag

img_20160923_172511

This bag is a tote style with long handles that took a lot of pinning to make sure they didn’t ‘walk’ whilst sewing them! This was the first of the Mad Old Bag range (trendy kudos label still to be sewn on) and I had a play with some fancy stitches on the sewing machine to embellish the heart motif on the pocket.  The heavy-ish upholstery fabric has come from a stash that was held by the nuns in a convent in Cornwall that is sadly closing down. I would love to have seen life through this fabric’s eyes over the last 40 years!
