My Creative Space


This week it's all about handbags again. I have a request for some Vintage Girly Inspired handbags, so I've been searching through the stash (and making a mountain of a mess) looking for appropriate fabrics.

This lovely vintage floral is from the same stash that I received from my friends mum. It's the perfect summer accessory.... especially with this heat.

I'm nearly finished but I've only now just realised that I've completely run out of magnetic snaps. I'll have to buy some on my travels today. One vintage girly handbag down, five more to go.

Have a wonderful Thursday and don't forget to check out the hostess with the mostest for all of the creative spaces of the day.

Great to be using form your stash Cam. That fabric is lovely. Now on your travels, will you just come home with magnetic snaps..??!!! Or maybe from bargains from Op Shops that you just HAD to go into!

Lovely fabric, Cam. I am also wondering if you are able to just get the snaps.... perhaps you may come home with a nice purse frame or two, or some bag handles?

What a gorgeous bag! Isn't hunting through the stash the best? Unfortunately when I do it I get so carried away that no actual sewing takes place! x

i think summer is turning into the girly bag summer! Everyone seems to be wearing them, well around here, anyway!
