Wish you were here - Postcard purses

I've been making these purses for my shops. The fabric makes me think of postcards, so I added a little message to each one.
And added some gingham trims and candy stripe lining to evoke seaside memories of little cafes, beach huts and sticks of rock.



The weather here is lovely!

Brilliant! you've made something really special, which without that extra flair they might not have been.
