From Andrea Millington in Cornwall, UK we have a lovely hand made cashmere & wool bag decorated with free-motion stitching and beads. Andrea made a matching removable coin purse that clips in to the inside of the bag -see photo below.
When I went to photograph Andrea's bag I thought I felt something in the coin purse. It was a silver english 50 pence! I love it. : ^)
Later, I read on Andrea's blog that she placed the coin in there for good luck, how sweet. Please go to Andrea's blog to view more photos, and read about how she made her bag & the materials she used. She wrote a great post about making her swap entry! So much fun to see that . . . . I also learned by emailing back & forth with Andrea that she has a Bachelor's degree in Fashion Design and completed the City & Guilds Embroidery course in 2003. So cool! thanks for joining us, Andrea.
