  • These are true family heirlooms, and works of art in themselves. They are hand embroidered by hand and take many tens of hours per bag, so although this may seem alot of money to some, its really not, well under the minimum wage, but each one a labour of love, and made entirely by us here at Farthingale by hand, not China or anywhere abroad,but right here by us in the city of Bath England. These are made to order so please e-mail us when ordering with all your specifics, each bag has 5 petals which are embroidered and open out to reveal pockets where sewing acoutrements can be put, again all of which are embroidered, and the centre of the bag is of a good volume and fastens shut with a drawstring and a bead that can hold yet more goodies, scissors, threads etc, whatever you want. Of course these can be used for any purpose not just sewing. P&P included within the UK but we will send anywhere so simply contact us for info on postage etc.
