Bird Ditty Bag

I absolutely love creating these sweet ditty bags! My favorite color is red so of course there is red all through this bag! The lining is a beautiful red civil war reproduction fabric from my stash. The back of the bag and strap were made using a rich brown reproduction civil war fabric that compliments the lining perfectly. It measures 8.5” x 6.5” with a 21” strap. Fun fact about the way I do some of my bags...they are completely reversible. When I want to change things up around my house I simply turn the bag inside out and add a sprig of greenery or Sweet Annie. The second photo shows what it looks like after turning it inside out.

Pincushion in vintage Base ****Pending****

This design, which I’ve stitched using silk threads on 40 count overdyed linen is a Sue Hillis Design. It is sitting in a vintage pincushion base, which I had found at an antique shop in Pennsylvannia a few years ago. I finished it in such a way, so that the pincushion could be removed if you wanted to change it out, but it does have a nice snug fit. I also made the matching scissors fob, which is filled with crushed walnut shells, and has an antique button. Scissors are included. It measures 5 1/4” in diameter, and about 1 1/2” high. Travel fare is 15.00, which includes tracking. Please click on photo to see additional pictures.
