Could you tell me what fabric you used?I wish you could do a tutorial on making it..I bought my sewing machine last year &only used it once so far..

      Hi Claire
      Yay! Definitely have a go at embroidery! Hmm.. I’ll have a think about a tutorial – good idea. The fabric I used was a pure linen that I have a bolt of but can’t remember the name – sorry. Any cotton makes a beautiful lining. The fabric used in the grey linen bag is a Liberty tana lawn. Experiment and have fun. Thank you for watching the podcast and I’m so pleased you enjoyed it!
