Both made from 100% recycled fabrics, the blue one has a plain cornflower blue lining and the lilac one a white and lilac floral lining.

Preston Presents

The Recycled Bag Lady will be presenting a stall at the Preston Presents Craft Fair (Preston Rutland, not Preston Lancashire!). Click on the link on the left for more information, and if you are in the area, come and say hello!

Magnolia Cream - £20

This bag is from a small offcut of beautiful woven chenille fabric in shades of cream, lined with a sumptuous black and bronze satin. It is fastened with a pretty crochet loop and fancy gold coloured button and finished with a detachable, crochet flower. Inside are two good sized pockets to stop your smaller items from disappearing to the bottom of the bag.

At 28cm x 28cm (11" x 11") it is not a shopper, more a large hand/shoulder bag. The strap is a generous 132cm (52") long so can go either over your shoulder or across the body.
