‘Stella’s Fabulous Frame Bag’ *New 2024


October 2024 dates are now available to book.


This “Fabulous Frame” bag has a wide easy opening, but secure zip top, two internal pockets, one external pocket and plenty of room inside!

You can really go to town with the fabric combinations on this one and make a truly unique bag.

My favourite fabrics are Harris tweed with a Liberty lining, but you can use any fabric of choice – a stronger weight/upholstery fabric is best for the exterior with a regular cotton or silk for the lining.

Finished size 10” high x 14” wide x 4” deep.

Stockist suggestion list will be emailed upon booking.

I always use YKK No 5 zips – these are chunkier than a regular dress zip and much more suitable for bags.
