Carrier Pigeon





When Mr.P and I went home to do the Birthday draw, I also got a bit of sewing done. What do you think of this hand screen-printed linen drawstring "Carrier Pigeon" bag?
The idea was to make lots of cotton "carrier" bags with the design on, but they take a long time to sew so will not be appearing in the Etsy shop until Christmas unless you want the 'fuzzy' one where the print hasn't worked. This little linen one, however, IS up for grabs!

The carrier bag idea is great Charlie! There is a company called "Great Art" who sell blank cloth tote bags in various sizes - perhaps they would be a good idea to cut down on sewing time?

Lofty was too scared to go to London but Gloria Henny Penny took it by storm!

Hiya,

I buy up in bulk those linen bags. They cost about 50p each. You could use those and pritn your designs on them.

You are so clever! :-)

That is truly ace. A bag...for carrying pigeons. Love it.

Thanks for your lovely comment. It's pigeon marvellous to be back.

Mr silver pigeon? Well, he's still a silvery twinkle in my eye I'm afraid. BUT the cogs in the pebbly crafting machine are starting to hum and whirr again. A pigeon might well pop out!
