Clutch Giveaway Winner!

 

 

 

 


I've collected vintage, hand-embroidered linens for some time, now...

...and I have quite a few small pieces that have been waiting patiently for new lives.

I just love to imagine all of our fore-mothers and fore-grandmothers carefully stitching away on these beauties in their rare free moments!

This little flower piece was part of a larger, partially-stained runner...

...so I rescued it and sewed it up into a little pocket.

I put velcro in it to keep things safe...

...and hand-stitched it to the inside of the bag.

I received four entries for this giveaway...

...Deb, Kelly, Mariana and Cameron.

Random.org chose #4-Cameron!

Thanks to all of you who entered!!

Yeah to Cameron! What a wonderful idea for the pocket. I have baskets full of vintage napkins, hankies, and odds and ends. Love the wonderful ideas you share! Thanks!

Love the little pocket you've put in the clutch and the little tag also looks great! Is it wood?

Heather said...

Thanks, Trixi-
Yes...the tags are made of wood. I bought them from a terrific Etsy seller named 'Roberto Sand'. He will work with you to create exactly the shape and design that you want! Here's the link to his shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RobertoSand

Heather, As I wrote you earlier in my email, thank you so very much. I will now dress up in something special and carry my new clutch. I will ask my husband to take my picture and send it to you, maybe I will wear one of my new creations with my new clutch. I will surprise you. Again, so many big thanks. Your work is very special and I will treasure it.
Hugs, Cameron

The vintage designs are lovely to behold. I would see the earlier generations weave/knit such beauties back here as well.
