Florentine Lilies Linen bag and Fabric Printing

This is my latest fabric printing 'project' a linen bag size - approximately 34cm height 28cm width, that I have made using my own design - Florentine Lilies. Although slightly nerve racking at first - in order to make sure that the hand printed design was the right size for the bag - it was a pleasure to sew up and quite therapeutic in the end.

Firstly I hand printed my own design onto some lovely natural coloured linen fabric:

Then a smaller version of the same design hand printed onto cotton for the lining:

A peek inside the bag after it has been sewn up reveals a nice surprise with the design continuing on the lining:

I have made the bag just the right size to carry a few essential things when I am out and will definitely be using it as a book bag for my book group.

These are lovely Jacqui, are you thinking of making them to sell? xx

Hi Katy
Thanks for your comment.
I was experimenting with them at first to see how the pattern fits on the size of bag etc. I have also been using the bag myself and have had great feedback about it - especially about the inside :-) so will be making some up to sell.
