Tapestry Bags

There’s nothing quite like a tapestry bag to add an individual touch to any outfit. A handmade bag is perfect for carrying this month’s book to a reading group, and for taking with you on walks or evenings when you only need to carry your purse, phone and keys.

We make up A-Z Animals tapestries into book bags for babies and children, either to take to school or for keeping that all-important bedtime book safe for the next evening.

Each bag is made up with fabric from one of our ranges, a contrast or coordinating lining fabric, two patch pockets on the inside, wadding between the layers, and a shoulder strap.

The cost of making up a bag includes initial canvas stretching and full making up and return delivery to a mainland UK address (postage may be more for other destinations).

If you are unsure about colour choices for your bag, call us on 01460 281111 to discuss colours or to request fabric samples, or click to look at our fabric options – wool mix, cotton or velvet.

A tapestry such as Grey Hearts looks wonderful as a bag and as a cushion.

Which fabric should I choose?

We make up tapestry bags using our three ranges of fabric – our robust wool blend range which has a textured feel, a cotton range which creates a more clean lined look, and finally a cotton velvet range for a touch of luxury.

There are numerous colour combinations, so call us for advice or email to request fabric samples.

Before you post your tapestry It will speed things up if you can include details of your chosen fabric, length of shoulder strap, and the width of border required around your tapestry. Include a diagram if that will make your instructions clearer for our sewing ladies.
