Vintage Blue Project Bag (fully lined)

***Sold! Thank you!***Hang from a peg and always have your project right where you can find it for those stolen moments of handwork. Or use it to keep other sundry items organized. This project bag measures about 12 inches across. Stitched onto the front are the words “My Work” penned in ink. The outer fabric is a dainty check homespun in blue that has been over dyed with a soak of black tea. The entire bag is lined. The fabric lining is a very nice piece of reproduction civil war cotton. The piece was neatly made using a sewing machine. I am asking $25 for the bag which includes shipping. The bag will be carefully packaged and promptly shipped to you. The piece was made in a smoke and pet free home.

Linen Heart ***twigs not included***

Old linen toweling with red stripes has been cut to form a divided pocket on a linen base heart. A vintage "underwear" button threaded with cotton twill tape (which was the purpose of these buttons) is sewn on to the center of the heart dividing the pocket. The pocket is taut, not loose, however there is room for sticking a twig or flower stem inside. At the point of the heart, there is a spot of wear, original to the toweling, adding lovely character to the piece. The heart is stuffed with wool. It measures about 7 inches tall and is about 5 inches across at the widest point.
