Op-Shop Finds - Embroidered Bag

November 05, 2013


I love this delightful little embroidered bag so much.  I could barely believe I got this for less than a dollar, and apart from needing a bit of a wash, it is in great condition.

The little elves hats are so beautifully worked, with lovely texture and incredible detail.  The tiny turquoise wings look so delicate too.

The bag made it through the wash, but it didn't reach the ironing board before our little girl spied it.  "Mine bag mummy?"  It has been lugging her favourite books, a crocheted deer and some walnuts around ever since.

Too sweet.
