The Amplector Bag – (Amplector – Latin for embrace, hug, entwine, clasp) is the latest addition to my range of slimline, crossbody bags.
This one is made in indigo denim with a front slip pocket in 100% cotton (matching the lining).
As well as a wide slip pocket on the front it also has a slip pocket inside which effectively divides the bag in two as it runs the whole width of the bag. The top of the bag is secured by a zip fastener to keep all your stuff secure.
The adjustable strap is made from soft yet sturdy purple cotton webbing – the colour purple being echoed in the top stitching on the bag.
Its slimline contours mean it fits closely to the body keeping your essentials safe and secure.
Its the ideal bag to take with you on a quick shopping trip or even on your daily walk. There’s plenty of room in here for your phone, your Kindle and other essentials.
It measures approximately 11.25 inches x 8 inches (28.5cms x 20cm)
As a finishing touch I have made a double sided denim/cotton tassel which will hopefully fray more with use giving it a rustic charm.
Made right here – entirely by me in my home studio – on the beautiful Isle of Man!
There is only one of these in this colourway.
Remember – if you are on the Isle of Man (or sending to an address on the Isle of Man) for just £3 this bag can be delivered right to your door by courier.
WHAT'S NEW AT CINNAMON EMBROIDERY
Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness - Keats
As we slide gently into Autumn my preferred colour palette and materials subtly change to reflect the mellow days ahead. Gentle warm rusty orange, subtle medium red and of course lovely gold/ochre. My embroidery designs will change too - Fall leaves
My first make this month is The Date Night Bag. A simple little bag made from soft faux, distressed leather and lined with a satiny warm rust fabric. As well as a slip pocket inside, this bag includes a compact zipped wallet/purse which has just enough room for a couple of cards, some change and the odd bank note. You can find out all about it below.
Coming up are one or two different items too. Hand crocheted ear warmer bands finished with Liberty of London Tana lawn accents. Just a couple of those at the moment. Still to list are some tweed neck warmers - some embroidered, some not. I'm also thinking about trying my hand at some hats - in a variety of fabrics.
My next bag may well be something in Waxed cotton (think of a well-known brand of outdoor wear!) Ooh and maybe another Date Night Bag in Laxey Tweed adorned with an embroidered Loughtan perhaps?
I haven't forgotten Cinnamon Homestyle either. I already have listed a couple of useful 'podlets' which fold flat for perfect gift giving so keep an eye on that shop too!
Don't forget if you are on the Isle of Man and buy something from my store when you get to checkout you will see that the postal charge is £3 for items delivered by courier within the Island.
This means that for £3 you can have your order delivered on the Island direct to your door - usually within 24 hours.
This only applies to items delivered on the Isle of Man but if you are ordering from the UK or elsewhere you can have your item sent directly to a Manx address and avail yourself of this service. Pain free gift giving!
When you complete your order you will also see there is an option to have your delivery 'left in a safe place' so please fill this out if you have special instructions.
STAY SAFE! STAY HAPPY!
