Creating bags has kept me sane during lockdown!  Do come along to see what I’ve been sMy ‘TweedleVee’ bags are sewn from Harris Tweed purchased directly from the weavers on the Isles of Harris and Lewis.  Harris Tweed is protected by its own Act of Parliament, and must be produced from 100% pure new wool yarn, dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland and woven by hand at homes of local islanders.  It is a lovely fabric to work with, and the subtle colours lend themselves to attractive combinations.  This year I am hoping to include more patchwork designs which have proved very popular in the past.  As always the bags will be lined with cotton lawn and will have zip and slip pockets.  If appropriate to the design, I like to install a useful zipped pocket on the outer bag.  Each bag has the Harris Tweed ‘Orb’ label sewn on the back to authenticate it.
