A good friend of mine is a school teacher, and she asked me if I could make her students some chair-bags... so, I have been making chair-bags! A lot of chair bags actually, I even had to start my own production line.
For as long as I can remember, my mother has collected souvenir tea towels. Every holiday we went on she'd buy a tea towel then take it home and put it away in the linen cupboard. I always thought it was such a shame to have them hidden away as some of them are so beautiful and a lot of them are really quirky. Most are made from pure linen, which gets beautiful and soft in time.
So I decided to make them in to bags, purses and whatever else I can!
A range of Melways accessories sprouted from a pile of old Melways at my old workplace.
