Who doesn’t love a bee – especially when she/he is buzzing gently in our green meadows on our beautiful Isle of Man?
This handy sized coin purse measures approximately 13 cms wide and 9 cms high and is completely made by me in my sewing studio right here on the Isle of Man.
Although it is exactly the right size to slip into your bag or pocket filled with coins, a few notes and perhaps a credit card or two, it could also be used to carry a small sewing kit or use with your larger project bag to hold your stitch counters for your crochet or knitting.
I’ve made it from pure Harris Tweed – an inter-Island collaboration between me here on the Isle of Man and a weaver on the Isle of Lewis in the Highlands of Scotland.
The outside is a very pretty shade of Meadow Green and it is fully lined with pure cotton in a floral design which complements the colours of the tweed and is finished with a Tibetan silver bee charm. Of course it has a zipped top.
It packs flat and is therefore easy to pop in the post to a friend or loved one to tell them you are thinking of them. It even comes in a grey organza gift bag at no extra charge.
* As my fabric collection changes over time it may be necessary to use a different lining fabric. But don’t worry – it will always be complementary to the exterior!
WHAT'S NEW AT CINNAMON EMBROIDERY - JANUARYI've decided to do a 'blogette' once a month to bring you up to speed with everything new at Cinnamon Embroidery (don't get TOO excited...) First of all - I've decided to extend the Cinnamon Embroidery sale until the end of February 2021. The great thing about an online sale is that you don't have to queue up at 5 a.m. in the cold (even if you could right now!) - you can shop 24/7 in your PJs! Most items are 10 - 15% off and all the items I add during January up to the end of February will also attract a discount so watch this space. (Discounts do NOT apply to Gift Vouchers by the way).You will surely find something you love which is ideal for those pesky birthdays that fall immediately after Christmas or even a 'just because' gift for yourself (you deserve it)! Secondly - I'll be adding some new and different items over the next few weeks. I'm going back to basics with HAND embroidery so look out for some cute coin purses and maybe larger bags (depending on when my patience runs out...) I shall also be making different bags - some embroidered - some not - in a variety of fabrics. The days are getting slightly longer and the evenings just a tiny bit lighter and Spring is on the way ...
WE CAN DO THIS FOLKS!
