dilly bags

finished a dilly bag which included some embroidery, something i haven’t done in yonks!  Really enjoyed the tactility of it, and realised the house lights in this rental all suck.

Oh yeah, i only embroidered the words, the vintage doily comes from Perpetual One.

Rockmelon is headed to the Suitcase Rummage Markets on Sunday.  Green Gertie  needs some work but is genuine, belonged to a friend of mine.  I remember my old suitcase, it was red and i was still using it when all my friends had a new, trendy canvas bag or back pack.  I remember gradually poking holes in it and battering it until my mum had to buy me something new.

I’d love to hear your cardboard suitcase story, leave me a comment.
