My friend Tanya was kind enough to give me a pieces of several French antique linens that she was not going to use. She thought the linens could be made into skirts for Flora Dooras. This is my first attempt working with the linens. Most are simply beautiful white on white embroidery. A real treasure trove. This one has
flowers and tiny butterflies. The pictures just don't do the material justice! It was fun to make!
I started sewing Flora Doora
bags several years ago for
friends, and commerically for a shop in Sarasota, Florida. My
bags have also made their way to France, for a country wedding and to a pretty little shop in Nannay. Since I have retired recently, there is more time
to enjoy sewing, decorating
and most of all traveling
(especially to France) with
my husband, Peter.
Comments from readers have made me realize how happy my Flora Doora bags make them, so I adopted the phrase "Spreading happiness one bag at a time". Makes it all so much fun!
