Well ‘Storm Ali’ has made herself known here today!
Lots of trees down and debris scattered everywhere.
Thankfully no loss of power where I live, and I’m also thankful I’m flying to Patchwork in the Peaks (Morzine, France) tomorrow and not today!
As you know I’ll be teaching my Denim Applique bag pattern at the retreat (pattern available here), and in keeping with the ‘repurposing textiles’ theme, I’ve made a tweed version to take with me.
I veered off the pattern slightly, frugally using the size of tweed pieces that I had, rather than chopping them up to the sizes of the denim pattern pieces.
I love the Autumnal feel to this bag, so tactile with all those textures from the tweeds, applique and twin needling!
I went for a Tilda lining to connect the soft green tones in the tweed leaves and panels.
So as Autumn well and truly blows in here, I have the perfect bag for the season!
And I’ll tell you all about Patchwork in the Peaks when I get back!
