Four-In-One Bag

I am really rather impressed with my efforts this week in bringing together the spring/summer collection (can you hear the tongue in my cheek) of Daisie Davies bags.

There are some good old staples; the slouch cross body bag and a mini messenger with new fabrics for a fresh feel (not pictured) .

I am most pleased with this variation;

Tied long to wear cross body

Tied short to wear on your shoulder

Why have I never seen this before?!

I have been making this style and pulling the straps through the right way before joining them together for years, why has it never occurred to me to not join them?

And with some careful seam finishing the bag has no inside or outside so can be used either way.

All are machine washable cotton so can be used and washed and used and washed (I have a slouch that is four years old and has been through the wash countless times).

Is it sad that this development excites me?

There are four new bags and some small felt owl cushions waiting to be delivered to the shop this week.

You can see regular updates on things I am making by going and 'liking' my facebook page here.

And you can see other local makers that help stock the shop at their facebook page here.
