My Folklore Fabric Tote Bags measure a generous 42.4cm in length, 47.5 in width and 10cm in depthThese cheery colourful cotton Tote Bags are also a real colour tonic to counteract any dreary April days!The woven patterns in the Folklore Fabric can be found in designs throughout our everyday lives, in textiles, interiors and also in architecture so they have a reassuring familiarity to them.

Folklore Fabric is unique to my shop and was an exciting collaboration between myself, as the designer, Richard MR Smith, a master weaver and talented folk at Weisters Mill in Darwen, Lancashire. Since I have only a few Folklore Fabric cushions remaining, I evolved my Folklore Fabric into a useful reusable roomy cotton Tote Bag, ideal for all your shopping purchases, or to keep your daily jetsam and flotsam in when you are out and about.Read More

For the last couple of weeks
The 🌞 has (mostly!) been out
And it feels as if
Spring has Sprung
I’m ever the optimist 😏
The sunny outlook
Reminded me of this fav image of my original Tana Lawn Liberty Print patchwork quilts
Nothing like these joyful prints
To lift the spirits no end
